You are absolutely right there, Mary! If I didn't have such a talented little partner, it would be a lot more difficult!

Ha! To be honest... most of them are kept the way I keep all my horse show ribbons... In a black plastic trash bag! Dave only lets me keep the title ribbons out on display, not class ribbons. (although I did sneak his ribbons from the national specialty in there too! )

While you're on the subject of trials, Karen, I got the scoop on the CCKC agility trials in Westborough. The reason they are held there is because we do not have a large enough indoor facility on the Cape and the club wants to have a fall option, as well as the trials held outdoors here in the spring. We had a meeting tonight and they mentioned that because it is a one-ring event, able to accommodate only 330 dogs, it filled up fast with a waiting list. Of course that's awesome for us. Sorry you didn't get in.

Well, it's nice that it's so close to me! Maybe next year.

Thanks for all the great info. So much to learn! I think I'll need to start some kind of spreadsheet/timeline to keep track of what is going on and what's our best fit.

I think that until/unless you get serious about competing, just pick ONE that is not too far away, and that other people you know will be going to. (for moral support! ) Then train toward that ONE. Once you ahve the first one under your belt, it doesn't seem so overwhelming anymore, and you can start to add others as you want. I only did APDT (now WCR) rally to start with. Then I added AKC Rally, then CDSP obedience, then AKC obedience, and then the two agility venues last. (and I still don't consider us "confirmed competitors" in agility AT ALL!)

I'm still feeling my way in agility. He has his permanent card for NADAC, because he's at the very bottom of his height range, meaning he only needed to be measured once. In AKC, it doesn't matter how far under they are, they still need to be measured 3 times, so we still need to do that at each trial. I also didn't realize how FAST AKC agility trials fill, and that you can actually mail entries ahead of the opening date, they just can't ARRIVE before the opening date. (for other sports it is by postmark) So I recently put entries in the mail for two trials ON the opening day, only to find out I was in 40th place on the waiting list!!!

If you start trying to learn all that stuff for all the different venues at the same time, you'll make yourself crazy!
