Training really does payoff...

One of our Kennel Club members is not only a competitor, but a respected Judge in Obedience, Rally, CGC and Trick Dog (and maybe other disciplines I don't even know about). The picture shows her taking a fall at an agility trial. (To belay any concerns, she did not suffer any injury) What you don't see is there was one more jump to complete the course. Not only did that beautiful Standard Poodle continue on and finish the course while her handler recovered, they qualified! Her dog immediately returned to her handler to make sure she was okay. Since she sent me this photo herself, I assumed it was okay to post this in the blog and remind us that all those hours of training will pay off when you least expect it.
