Tabasco's run at the 2000 National Trial was faultless for a perfect score of 100 points. He also completed the course in 40.57 secs, which was about two-thirds the allotted time for the course.
This trial was held outdoors in inclement weather, which presented especially difficult conditions for the participants. The majority of the dogs were unable to penetrate the waterlogged chute, and failed to complete the course. Only three dogs, of the many that were entered, managed to complete the course that day and two of them were Chestnut English Cockers, Tabasco and his mother Sienna. Tabasco was the final dog to compete in his class, with conditions as bad, if not worse, as the conditions for all the others competing.
Tabasco completed his Novice Agility title with three 1st placements.

They placed 1st and 2nd, respectively, in their agility class at the 2000 National Agility Trial for the English Cocker Spaniel Club of America.
Tabasco has been continuing his pursuit of higher level agility titles. At trials conducted by the Blitzen Agility Club at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL in February, 2002, Tabascos first trips into the open agility rings resulted in qualifying scores in the open jumpers with weaves class and a 2nd place in open standard.
Tabasco was ranked by Front and Finish #8 English Cocker Spaniel in both Novice Standard and Novice Jumpers with Weaves competition for 2001.
