I'm thinking we might call it quits on obedience trials. I don't think we'll quit training and I do think we'll explore other sports but I just think the obedience trials might not be for us. We've been away this weekend and Ella has been fantastic. She's walked nearly every where off lead, not drifting too far and recalling beautifully - even away from rabbits and kangaroos! Then, when we're at dog club she bounces along by my side, heeling beautifully and so eager for the next cue. It's so much fun even the work in the practice rings. Finally, we get to trials (even our FOOS practice sessions) and we're both stressed and she wants nothing more than to get out of the ring.
