    Default Perry,GA. Agility Trial In July(AKC)

    Any fellow COTHers doing this trial in July? If so what days and level are you and your dog doing? What kind of dog will you be handling?
    I will be running Thurs,Fri,Sat. My Black-Tri Aussie(Murphy)is moving up to Open Standard and we will be trying to get our last "Q" in NJWW.

    I gave up running AKC. I tried it once and it was insane! I don't know how you people do it.......

    But good luck to you! I will stick with my NADAC and my USDAA

    So, okay I'm curious what was so "insane " about the AKC trial that you did?

    OMG! It was like a crazy place. It was super noisy, VERY crowded ( people put up FULL SIZED TENTS inside the covered arena). Very chaotic. My dog does not do well in chaos, so I pulled him from the show and went down and showed in the very quiet non chaotic ASCA Show.

    Its one of those situations where I was not going to set him up to fail.

    So was this a combo Conformation/Agilty?- cuz the 2 AKC agility trails I've done were indoors and the only thing allowed anywhere near the rings were at one end where some people set up a chair or 2 to watch. Perhaps it was just that paticular show that allowed that.

    Nope, this was all agility. It was NUTSO! ARGH! I coulndn't stand it. But a woman in my class IS going to the AKC show in Perry. She's the only one of us that will do AKC.

    I am going Wed. thru Sat. Excellent B with my tri Aussie boy Spencer and Open with my blue aussie girl Allie. Hopefully Allie will move up to excellent as she needs one Open Standard and two Open jumpers. She is behind in jumpers because of complete handler error!!!!


    MadeYaLook, where in FL. are you? I am in Bell.
