Oh crap what have i done :birthday: diesel and i are starting our obediance trialing career at the shoalhaven dog club trial at the end of july, every time i think of it i get butterrflys already :rofl:

so any tips for my first trial? i picked a smaller club trial as my first time plus its my own club so that diesel is comfortable on the grounds any thing else i should do to prepare him?

Breath and enjoy. And if I can do it with a greyhound you can do it with your wonderful boy! Remember you are taking home the best dog there.

LOL thanks for reminding me Tiggy! :):thanks:

There is some good advice in the training talk thread as I recently asked the same thing. What you do to prepare your dog is really an individual thing. For me ideally I do nothing with Daisy at least 24 hours before hand: no food, training, games, walks etc. Some people do the opposite. Just what works best for your dog :thanks:

:thumbsup: way to go. You will be able to have a good day and dont just sit around all day i suggest you watch the ring by yourself for one dog if possible this will help you to know what pattern the ring work is being done in.

:thumbsup: do remember that you little baby does need to go to the toilet just like you do and ensure it also has access to water on the day!!!

:laugh: Best of luck!!

Nice work! I'll be cheering for you (so long as I'm not in the ring at the same time!)

I think I'm last or 2nd last in the novice ring (can't remember exactly), so I probably will be able to watch!
