Some friends of ours hosted a dog trial last weekend, it's the third year they've done it and the first that I made it to. I've never been to one so it was fun,went with Carol who has dabbled in sheep dog trials. Can see how a person would want to start doing it as I kept thinking "well Jill could do that"
Of course she could at home but could she do it there? There will be two more in the area this summer so will try to go watch them too. Also a trainer I know is giving a clinic in LaGrande in June so may try to go that too. You can always learn something!
Gcreek, do you know or know of Richard Marten? Guess he's from Vanderhoof. I talked to him for a minute but didn't get to ask him if knew you.
