Running indoors

Running, catching, leaping; this is the forum to discuss dog sports and agility training with other active pups!

Here in Southern California we dont have many indoor agility trials. Most of our trials are outdoors on grass but we have a couple trials a year that are. Huck enterd his first trial in a covered horse arena on dirt in February. It did not seem to bother him, he had focus and did everything but he did it slower then normal. The next weekend we had a USDAA trial once again in a different covered horse arena on dirt. He was once again slower then normal. Not distracted nor did he seem stressed out and he ran clean, just not his usual zippy little self. There really is no way to train for it since we train outside but does anyone have any suggestions or hints on why he would do this?
