Kip and I did our 1st personal protection trial this past weekend at the Dog Sports Open at Cher Car Kennels in St. Johns, MI. I learned a LOT at this training trial about my dog and had an utterly wonderful time. Highly recommend the DSO to others. We competed in the Beginners Division with 37 other dogs. There also were Intermediate and Advanced Divisions. People from several states competed. I am already looking forward to competing in this next year. Here's a pic of me with Kip at this event.
