Above all, have FUN and even if you NQ still give your dog a treat and try harder for the next time! I have been NQ'ing so much that I am shocked if I qualify! But Nyxie still gets that treat when we leave the ring.

And BREATHE! Loosen up and enjoy yourself. I've seen some exhibitors take it out on their dog when they don't get the score they wanted. Nyxie NQ'd twice this weekend and while it was embarrassing and I was upset over the mistakes she made that I didn't see coming, she's going to get her CD sometime and I will be so ecstatic when she does! Don't want to ruin the show experience for her so I still treated her like we had qualified and I added her mistakes to the list of things I need to proof her on.

You're right, it's done on lead. I was talking about what I've seen in general as some of the most common mistakes. There's so much to think about!
