Thanks everyone!

Cliff- I really like Jack. He has so much passion for this sport. He judged a little harder than I expected in lower titles but was fair. I really liked it. If you passed, you earned it. Only one dog all day scored in the 90's for obedience and only two dogs scored in the 90's for protection. Coming from another sport, it was nice to not just see 90's thrown out to everyone.

I got a 94 from Jack in obedience for P-1, and his pencil was sharp that day....lol but as you said, he is incredibly fair!

Awesome pics!

Yeah I always liked that Jack guy. When SDA was affiliated with the UKC he ran demos and trials ALL day at the UKC Premier for several days in a row (which, if you've ever been, somehow always ends up being insanely hot and humid even though June in Michigan is usually not). Whether people were watching or not, they were working dogs!!

I really want to see SDA take off. I love this sport! Both as a handler and as a decoy this sport is so much fun and versatile. My GF got the trial bug so we are trialing again June 8th and then she's doing their IPO 1 June 28th. For the June 8th trial I even entered our pet pitbull haha. I want to trial something and my 15 week old puppy just isn't ready yet haha. I just want the experience and I know he can pass an FO so why not.

No problem! You should come out one of these days. Cindy was asking how I had found them yesterday and I had said from you. Then of course we were talking about you:D
Don't believe a word of it. :D Actually I used to spend quite a bit of time out there training, until my whole life turned upside down about ten years ago. I may come out again if I get another pup or dog, just not sure if I want to do bitework.
