On November 17th, I earned my Novice Standard Preferred Agility Title, (NAP). This is my second agility title, and now I’m officially done with novice, and moved up to the open class! Yay for me! It was another trial at Fusion, where I earned my other Novice Jumpers Preferred Title (NJP). Mom says I need to either be taller or quit earning such big ribbons!
I didn’t get a video of my run, nor did I get a photo on the course, but that is alright. Back in October I got two of my three legs I needed for my title at another trial. Its amazing, I got first place in all my qualifying runs. The thing I’m wondering is why the title is called NAP for short. Doesn’t it sound more like something for a cat?
This is a copy of the standard course I had to run. Standard has all the equipment, A-Frame, Walk It, Tunnels, Weaves (only six), Table, Tire, Teeter, and various Jumps.
Mom only had her phone along, so photos were limited. The course photos are above. One is from the left side, and one from the right.
I also got measured in November for the second time. In AKC agility, after a dog turns two, she needs a height card. To get the card, I had to be measured by two different measuring judges. For me it was super important because Mom will only run me in eight inch preferred because I am short and have a long back. If measuring put me above fourteen inches I would have to jump twelve inches, and Mom said we would quit agility. I’m happy to say, both my measurements let me stay at the eight inches! Now that is done, so I never need to be measured again.
On to Open Jumpers and Standard for Team Madison later this month!
