I'd see where she's at. If there's something I've learned from both of my boys, even if I don't think they are ready, but they are almost there...try it. What's the worst that could happen? Fail? It's not the end of the world. I see trials as a test of my own training and handling. I'm still new and even newer at IPO. I'm a PSA gal haha. But, I thought my Dobe would refuse the jumps and the send out. He did a perfect send out and decent jumps! We were OK and passed our IPO I A!
So, keep training and see where you are at end of January! I think you will be surprised!
