That tip from Rita was pure genius and Alexis worked it perfectly today in the Junior ring. She slowed down her pace, was patient and calm – She did everything right! The only thing I would have faulted her on was at the very, very end, she self-stacked KC instead of getting down onto her knees and hand stacking her. Either way, she worked the entire time she was in the ring. They were a completely different team in there today!
It didn’t get her any placements but it got the judge to pull her aside and give her the sweetest pep talk . He commended her on how difficult it is to she a Chihuahua and that she did an amazing job with the a dog that wasn’t too comfortable in the ring.
