Trial/Test Season is fast approaching!
In my neck of the woods, trials and tests will be starting soon, with the first southern venued trial in only three weeks.
DANG, how in the world did I let the months slip by without getting all the boxes checked off my training list?!
I'll probably miss the earliest trials because my derby dogs need additional water work before putting them on display ... and my all-age dog can use some H2O disciplining as well.
I'd love to run at least 5 trials this spring, but I'm not sure that I can get that done.
It's been a few years since I've hit the derby trail, but I'm looking forward to it. I even checked Entry Express for trial dates to insert into my calendar. For me, derbies are a whole lot more fun than the all-age stakes ... after all, once you cut the derby dogs loose, it's all up to them to do their jobs. Of course, even in a derby there will be jitters every time I head to the line (especially with one of my youngsters, which is pretty wired). But once I'm on the line, I sort of get in a "zone," so the jitters pretty much disappear or, at least, are not within my consciousness.
So who's planning to run trials and/or tests this spring?
And who's ready???
