|I agree, even a seasoned dog ( like us) can have 'breakdowns' from time to time.. We have good days and bad days. We went to class for a year and a half before we started trialing, we've now been trialing for about a year now. Addie's done great, I go to a trial a month/ every two months or so so not too frequent. Sometimes she decides its ' too scarey' and wont do much, but other days she looks liek shes won 5 MACH/CATCH's already..
A very young inexperienced dog would get turned off with the crazy environment, i'm sure. Although my sugestion would be if you think you're ready, enter a trial, do one run, see how it goes, and leave.. that way some experience is gained without overwhelming too much. CPE level 1 is super easy and a good place to start.. some level 1 courses only have about 8 obsticles.
