Part 1. Entering your first trial! Practice filling out your first trial entry and practice measuring dogs. We will have sample entries for the 5 organizations in this area: UKI, USDAA, AKC, CPE, and NADAC. Bring you own entry if you have a trial in mind! We will discuss what the different classes are, help you decide what to enter, and teach you how to fill out your entry. Not sure which organization? We will discuss the different organizations and local venues find the best fit for your team. We will also practice measuring dogs with a wicket.
$50 includes Parts 1, 2, and 3 (three runs for one dog).

Part 2. Discussion of Fun Match course.
In this optional discussion we will walk the match course with you and discuss strategy, options for handling, and answer any questions you have.

A standard course (all obstacles) will be set. 8 minute walk through will be provided and dogs will run in height order as in a trial. Limit 50 runs.
