Episode 162: Why Does My Dog Run Slower at the Trial? post image

In this episode (16:29)

Sarah and Esteban talk about dogs that perform better at home than at shows. Some dogs slow down at trials while other dogs run fast but consistently make mistakes on the same thing like start lines or weave poles. We share some tips for both training and trialing to help handlers work through these issues.

You Will Learn

  • Why some dogs run slower at shows than at home or practice.
  • Why you need to make your practices harder than the trial.
  • How to “practice” with your dog at a trial.
  • Proper attire for weddings.
