Thanks! Best of luck to you on finishing your PDCH! I know in general that fewer dogs compete in Performance, but it surprises me that more German Shepherd owners don't enter Performance instead of Championship. Looking back, I probably would have, but at least Mikko gets to jump 20" now!

Thanks! I do really like USDAA. The courses are not always so GSD friendly (faster times and tighter courses with 270s, wraps, backside jumps, etc.) But I think it is comparable to UKC.

I like it because there are so many different games and tournaments so you don't sit around all day for two classes. It's highly competitive because you have to beat out other dogs for SuperQs in Snooker and Qs in Steeplechase (similar to T2B). But, that's what makes it so fun! Everyone watches these classes and cheers for everyone else as they get through it. And the crazy fast border collies can crash on these courses so it is definitely possible for a GSD to qualify or get a SQ.

They also recently changed some of the heights so now the performance height for the tallest dogs is 20" (used to be 22"). So if you don't want to jump 26", it's a great option.

I hope you try it, it is a super fun venue!
I do plan on entering a trial in April here. Plan on running performance levels too. May is just barely 24 inches and I do not want to jump her higher than her withers. Should be fun!

Do you like USDAA? I have always done AKC/UKC but am thinking about sticking my toe in the water with USDAA as we are seeing more trials around here now.
