Now, I know it says "Protection Dog Tournament" but two years ago I begged and pleaded to get them to go through with the idea of an obedience only category. They had considered it before, but never actually done it. The first year they had four dogs in beginner, last year there were 6 in beginner and 2 in intermediate. PBT has been very well represented.
If it's the same this year as last year, obedience only will be $25 an entry. Beginner is on leash, intermediate is similar to intermediate but off lead and a little more difficult.
It is a VERY good opportunity for you to try something new with your dog, and it is a TRAINING TRIAL, which is a very unique setup. There are a lot of threads about it, I'll post them up in a few...
If you only go to one trial this year, I would highly recommend that you make a trip to this one. You'll never see anything like it!
