This morning I've been thinking about what dog I'm going to trial with in spring. The puppy won't be old enough yet, the dog I've been playing with will be home (I haven't given her up yet because um... I like her
), so it looks like I'm going to do an obedience title with Darcey(my pit). Darcey does not have strong nerves, and during trialing he gets very stressed. He just wants off the field as fast as he can. What are some things you guys do to combat trial nerves in the dogs?
