Our next major trial occurred the following year at
Autumn Winds. Since we were working for points
toward Dillon's next title, we were entered as AGIB &
AGIIB. This meant that Dillon did not get to walk
through the course prior to running it. I had wondered
if the previous year might have been a fluke, but again,
Dillon set me straight before the weekend was over.
September 16-17, 2006
The UKC UACH title requires the dog to earn a total of
100 points. If the dog scores a perfect run of 200,
then 10 points is earned. A 199 score earns 6 points,
198 earns 4 points, 197 earns 2 points and 196 earns 1
point. For all practical purposes, a 195 or below is a run
for fun. Being entered in all four trials that weekend,
there was the potential of earning 80 points if Dillon
had perfect 200 runs.
I wasn't sure what to expect after we messed up
the first run Saturday morning. However, Dillon
ran two perfect AGI runs and one perfect AGII
run that day. Not only that, but he earned the
High Combined award for the afternoon trial! I
was most surprised, but pleased to add that to his
accomplishments. The day's ribbon total included
two 1st place finishes & one 4th place.
On Sunday, Dillon had three perfect 200 runs, plus
one run of 199. With these scores he placed in all
4 runs, receiving one 1st place, one 3rd place & two
4th place ribbons. His total points earned during
the weekend was 66! Added to his 2 points earned
at the Belroi Agility trial in May 2006, he finished
the weekend with a total of 68 points toward his
