SUMMARY: Back to the database for AAD analysis. Because I can.
That was Tika's SACH-Bronze, by the way (Standard Agility Championship, with 15 Masters Standard Qs).
And Boost's AAD (Advanced Agility Dog).
My first agility dog, Remington, earned his AAD three years and three months after our first USDAA trial. That was 27 trials worth of experience, 12 of which were USDAA trials. It seemed like forever!
My second, Jake, earned his AAD one year and 9 months after his first USDAA trial. That was 19 trials total, 8 of which were USDAA.
Tika took two years exactly to get to her AAD; that was 45 trials, 20 of which were USDAA. That also seemed like forever, but in a whole different way.
Boost took 1 year and a couple of weeks, over 18 trials, 14 of which were USDAA.
What does this prove? That I've got a database! Wooohoo!
