Jive's Year in 2011

Jive has had a fantastic year with gaining titles in AD, JD, JDX, and ADX with first places in every event.
He also has two first places in Masters Jumping, Jive and Kris both have grown together as a great team and will be better for it next year. Jive will be trying out for the teams event in March to be run at the Nationals, we will be travelling to the Nationals in June 2012 which will be a great event, as all states in Australia will be competing at the Nationals in NSW. Jive also fathered two great little pups Spark and Roxy in August this year. So he did have a rather busy year.

Jive was awarded his sash at club this year with his titles that he gained.

Jives Wins Masters Jumping Again

Katie and Kris drove to Portland which is a five hour trip, a couple of weekends ago they did have a lovely weekend but only managed one pass all weekend and that was with Nakita.

So during the following week they had Jive all week and trained him nearly every day with front crosses, rear crosses, call offs from tunnels, and also some jump grids. So they were ready for the next weekend of trialling. It was the last trial for the year, Jive had some lovely runs but one or two faults nearly in every course, except for the one in masters jumping he blitzed the course by beating second (which is also one of the fastest dogs in the state) by 1.25 seconds .
