Trial Checklist

Things to remember when going to an agility trial:

  • Your dog
  • Your wallet
  • Running shoes
  • Clean underwear
  • Lots of treats& kibble

If you actually manage to pack more than this for a trial, congratulations! You either made a list or have done this a lot. If it’s your first time, you’re welcome. These are the essentials. While you can probably buy anything on the list after #3, it’s vitally important to remember those first two items up there. You’ll notice I didn’t list clean clothes. It’s futile in this sport to try to remain presentable anywhere outside of the trial. It’s how they keep you there to volunteer for all the other event ;)

Penny has a PSA: It's mostly important to remember the treats. The rest can wait.

We packed up& headed away this past weekend for our last trial of the season. It was fabulous, as I managed to meet all my goals for the season (another post) so with we are now into the winter of training& prep for regionals ..I have a feeling it is going to be a very busy winter! My mom surprised me by coming up for this trial& made everything extra awesome by braving the cold& her allergies to watch 5 of my less-than-60sec-runs. That is dedication to your kid! We also may have drank some alcohol and eaten some chocolate cake with boiled icing. It was delicious. I have video of some of the runs but I’m going to save it for my 2013 Trial Wrap Up!
