WHAT TO DO BEFORE YOU ENTER YOUR FIRST AGILITY TRIAL & WHAT TO DO TO SAVE YOUR Q

IMG_1237Paula Ratoza, trainer, handler, and AKC and UKI agility judge will review the things you need to do before the trial weekend, what to do when you arrive and before you enter the ring, and what you should or shouldn’t do inside the ring so you and your dog don’t get eliminated.

This workshop is for handlers new to the sport of agility.  Whether you’ve already trialed, or your first trial weekend is coming up soon, Paula will help you navigate the steps leading up to a successful agility experience.

Save that Q!

Paula will share the rules that most often trip up competitors. Rules specific to AKC that apply to both inside the ring and the remainder of the show grounds will be discussed.

General topics that apply to most agility venues will be covered including:

  • entering a trial
  • checking in before you show
  • measuring your dog
  • etiquette
  • safety

Time will be allowed for questions relating to agility trials
