Tinbie had a very good two days at the NACA show in Edmonton. We ventured into the obedience ring for the first time, for rally obedience. He was a little unfocused at times, but pulled it together enough to qualify in both novice trials, with a 4th place in the 2nd trial.
In conformation he was the only flat-coat entered and there were many lovely sporting dogs. However, on Saturday he was awarded a Group 3rd under judge Cindy Vogels! This win gave him another 110 top dog points and he is currently the #3 flat-coat in Canada.
His half-brother, Ripley, was also entered in rally for the first time and qualified three for three, gaining his rally novice title and a 3rd placing. It was his owners' first time in the rally ring as well!
Cava came along for the experience and enjoyed socializing with dogs and people at the show.
