View Full Version : Pup's first Field Trial

04-27-2015, 04:40 AM
Our Vizsla pup Lexi is about 9 mos old now and Lisa has been doing some training with her for Field competition. This weekend was Lexi's first Derby and was held at Hastings Is. Dog Handlers showed up as far away as San Diego and Oregon. Lisa broke her leg last Sat. falling from a horse and I had to step in and run Lexi as a replacement for Lisa. After a quick lesson on what was needed out of me and how to handle the pup in the field for judging, I did every thing I was suppose to do and let Lexi show her training and potential and we walked away with second placehttp://outcastanglers.com/forums/images/smilies/more/fing05.gif out of a field of somewhere around 12 other competitors in her class, which is 15 mos. and under. I'm really proud of her because other than another pup which was 10 mos old, the rest where right on upper limit of age. She look like a miniaturize dog out there compared to the rest that looked like full grown dogs. Next trial hope to bring home the Blue Ribbon and some Championship pointshttp://outcastanglers.com/forums/images/smilies/more/sign0075.gif Very proud of my wife for her hard work,,,gregg
