I am starting training this week with 3 year old Jack my recently adopted GSD. I am hoping it will be a great bonding experience for us :)

I saw you were judging, that's awesome AB and thank goodness it's at Springers, much better ground for an ET for sure :)

I'll pop in an entry when the schedule comes out :)

How do I go about entering an ET?

I would like to do the Rottweiler Club one.

I own an Aussie Shepherd though..

(sorry, never done one before so not sure whether other breeds/non members of the club are allowed)

Hi, most ET's are open to all breeds. You are more than welcome to enter with an Aussie Shepherd. Requirements are that the dog is registered with the VCA, and you and any handler are a member of the VCA. Make direct contact with the club for entry details or see the schedule on the Facebook "Endurance Test ANKC" group site.

Good luck Rebanne! Hope the knee holds up. Which ET are you aiming for? How is the training going?

We have entered the GSDCSA one which is in 7 weeks tomorrow. We have been training 3 times a week and are now up to 8km a session :)

Sounds good Rebanne!

Abbiestar does the willingness test also have to be completed on a flat collar?

I was thinking of taking the show lead so we could do our out and back and then a triangle :laugh:

Yes, it does. The same collar for both tests and the run. No swapping of collars or harnesses.

So, who's entered in the Vizsla ET this Sat?

I'm really looking forward to it, haven't done one for years.

We'll see you there :thumbsup:

Good luck Starkehre!

Less than 4 weeks until I do the SA one with Jack!

What training are you doing during the last week?

Thanks Kynan... 4 more sleeps LOL

You must be starting to get excited too :) All the very best for your trial next month :thumbsup:

My plan for the last week is this -

Sat - rest day

Sunday - 2.5km swim in heated dog pool

Monday -10km bike ride, average 10.8kmph

Tuesday - 7.5km treadmill, interval training (3.5kmph walk + varying speed trot up to 10kmph), mostly flat, some @ 1 degree incline

Wednesday - 2.5km swim as above

Thursday - early am only - 2km @ 2 degree treadmill walking only. Remainder of the day rest

Friday - rest

Vet check on the Friday, day before. Helps eliminate risk of the dog getting KC sick before the trial.

Added, I do find the larger, warmer, heavier breeds require a slightly tougher training lead up than medium, cooler and lighter breeds. Not so much so they can manage the distance, but more about them managing to vet in regarding temp and heart rate.

The week prior to this last week we were still including herding and weight pull, but staying away from other dogs for the last 10 days as much as possible in case of KC.
