Results of the APDT Rally Obedience Trial by Troy Ballard
Paws for Reflection had a very successful APDT Rally Obedience Trial as part of the 2008 Cynosport World Games. There were over 30 teams participating in this three-day event and every team qualified in their class at least once.
We had 10 teams finish titles and two teams that were new to APDT that earned qualifying scores.
One team finished their ARCH-X. This required them to qualify at Level 1 and Level 2 at the same trial five times (double QQ) with a score of 195 or better as well as already completing their ARCH - APDT Rally Champion title.
One team finished their RL1X title - 13 qualifying scores in Level 1 and one team finished their RL1X2 - 23 qualifying scores in Level 1.
One team finished their RL2X title - 13 qualifying scores in Level 2.
One team finished their ARCH - APDT Rally Champion title - this required them to qualify at Level 1 and Level 2 at the same trial five times (double QQ) with a score of 190 or better.
Special awards were presented to High-Scoring teams in the following categories:
1st Rally Trial
Awards were also given to two handlers for Best Sportmanship and two dogs for Best Smile. Our judges were very impressed with the venue and enjoyed themselves greatly!
