Working kelpie Noonbarra LuckyStar in agility's Wildcard game. Filmed early in Lucky's training, and after many months of neither training nor competing. In the Wildcard game, there are three obstacle choices along the path, and the dog must travel two of the "One" choices, and one of the "Two" choices (handler/dog preferences). In this course, the choices are located at tunnel in far corner beyond the dogwalk (choices are the near and far end of tunnel), tunnel in upper left of course (near and far end of tunnel) and penultimate obstacle (single jump and chute). Lucky is faulted for missing the downslope contact on the Dogwalk (performance subsequently improved with further training). Allowed course time is 61 seconds; Lucky's time is 16 seconds. Lucky runs at a jump height of eight inches to impel handler to improve delivery of timely instructions for Lucky's forward path.
