Jeanita and Magnus Earn 8th Consecutive Level 3 Title!

Jeanita and Magnus trialed again today at the Way Out West Schutzhund Club and earned another IPO 3 title under USA judge Frank Phillips. The team ran a nice track earning a score of 92.

They lost points during the obedience phase when Magnus decided to do automatic finishes on ALL the recalls and veer toward Blind 1 on the send-out. He also required two down commands on the send-out. Their obedience score was 83.

Magnus’ protection routine started with missing blinds 4 and 5 during the blind search. He was strong and powerful in the hold and bark was again very close to the helper and lost points for “molesting the helper.” Their protection score was 85a.

Congratulations to Jeanita and Magnus on earning another title!

Tim and Sasha Earn their BH

Tim Cutter and Sasha did a great job at the Menlo Park Schutzhund Club today with their BH routine. We’re looking forward to seeing this team next year when they hope to earn their IPO 1.

Tim is the training helper at Menlo Park Schutzhund Club and we highly recommend him for anyone in the Bay Area looking for schutzhund or companion training for their dog(s). He is awesome!

EXTRA kudos to Tim are also in order for his INCREDIBLE IPO 3 performance with his German Shepherd, Hektor at this same trial. He and Hektor earned scores of A98 B96 C99a! These are scores that most of us can only dream of achieving. We are super proud of you, Tim!

Here is a video of Tim and Sasha’s BH performance:

Jeanita and Magnus Earn 7th Schutzhund Level 3 Title!

Jeanita handled Magnus again today at the Way Out West Schutzhund Club trial to earn another IPO 3 title under USA judge Anne-Marie Chaffin. The team ran a beautiful track with Magnus tracking very accurately, with a slow, steady pace and following the corners “on a rail”. All his article indications were also correct. Unfortunately, a few handler errors at the articles cost them a “V” score. Handlers must pick up the article from the right side of the dog and Jeanita picked them up from the left side. We’re sure she will never forget this part of the rules! Their tracking score was 91.

During the obedience phase they had an overall spirited and high-drive performance. The team lost some significant points when an errant throw of the dumbbell resulted in Magnus coming around, rather than over the A-frame with the dumbbell, and when he went directly to the “finish” position on all the recalls (ouch). Their obedience score was 76.

Magnus’ protection routine was strong and powerful. He ran all six blinds fast, but wide. His hold and bark was very close to the helper (this is his style). Unfortunately, his chin tapped the sleeve with each bark and this was considered molesting the helper. It was entertaining to see Joel “driving” him as Magnus sets his rear down like an anchor to make the helper really work to drive him. Their protection score was 82a.

Congratulations to Jeanita and Magnus on earning another title!

Jeanita Handles Magnus for his 6th Schutzhund Level 3 Title!

Magnus does it again! And this time with a different handler. Jeanita, who has never handled at a 3 level, did a great job putting another 3 title on Magnus. The team even got high in obedience at this trial. Congratulations to Jeanita and Magnus!

Mishka Earns IPO 2 Title

Ann and Mishka received their IPO 2 title at the Wild West Dogsport Trial held in Delhi, CA. Mishka showed a very strong performance in the protection phase but Ann had some difficulty getting her away from the helper at times so lost some valuable points. Ted Hartman, the judge, mentioned during his critique that you don’t see many strong females like Mishka of any breed. Congratulations Ann and Mishka!Ascomannis Mishka Blind Search
