Okay... so it won't work to plan on rubbing steak juice on the one article and going with that then.

No you do not need separate sets for each dog. However if you are training/trialing multiple dogs in utility it is much easier. I do this now with Brooke and Oriana. But I switch the sets between them so they do not have their "own" set. It is also good to have an extra set for times when at a match and you do multiple runs that day or in case they have trouble and make a mistake or two you can switch out articles if needed. Also some clubs now have two trials in one day son it is good to have extra for that. Some judges will allow you to reuse the same article in the second trial but not all will.
So in other words, if you have a "scented" article from an earlier run, you don't have to worry about that going into the pile because the judge selected another. This is good to know... o_O

Instead of buying two sets, how about just buying extra articles? My trainer recommended that I buy one set and two extra of each to have enough for a weekend of showing. That is what I did when I placed the order two weeks ago. I hope that wasn't a bad idea.

So do you have 4 each of the same number? I wasn't sure how that worked. I ordered the extras without numbers.

No, the company I ordered from had numbers 0-9, so I got numbers 1-9

A pocket on each end means you can use one for the scented articles and one for gloves. A double zipper for the main compartment makes it easier to open up wide. Annabel and Conner both had bags from here, and Flip's is custom made but has all the same design aspects.
Thanks Jodie,
I would need a large?

I had a standard size for Annabel and a large for Conner. The large was pretty big, I think most dogs could use a standard. But of course too big is better than too small.
