Diesel made his debut in Open at the Diamond State German Shepherd Dog Club’s GSD Specialty this morning. He felt at home surrounded by the other shepherds and it was fun to see how similarly the dogs of the same breed behaved in and out of the ring.
Diesel did a fabulous job in the open ring. He was relaxed enough to jump in celebration between exercises, he gave me decent fronts and finishes (even fixed his front on the broad jump) and he managed to get a perfect score on the Retrieve Over High Jump after I set him up with a bad throw. AND he held his out of sight stays on top of all that!
Diesel ended up in 2nd place with a score of 195.5 in Open B. I am very happy with him!
