Default Went to my first IPO trial today

and it was awesome!! It was really neat to see all the different dogs out on the field. I even got to be in the group on the field for part of the trial. I can see why this is addicting. We've been doing IPO training with Bear for a little over a month (he's 10 months old) and have really been enjoying it, but seeing the trial today helped make it "real." Bear is a WGSL and we didn't get him specifically for IPO, but our trainer says he should do well in the sport and will be a good first dog to learn with.

So...how did everyone get started in IPO? Any stories about your first IPO dog? Any tips for a newbie?
