Default At what age did your dog start trialing?

And in which sport, of course?

Frag started trialing in CPE agility right about the time he turned three. He started trialing in UKC Dock Diving at 2.

Recon probably won't start trialing in CPE until he's 1.5-2 if we're lucky, but I'm not looking to beat any records with him, and to be honest, I'm lazy and cheap so we train a lot, but it's just for fun and I frequently don't feel like actually going to trials and spending the money on them.

But, we have a few dock diving events where I work each year and I'd love to start trialing Recon this spring, if applicable. I haven't even read UKC's rules for age of entry for DD competitions... and I don't know if it's frowned upon or rare for young dogs to enter? All the dogs I know from DD are much older; 2-7 years old usually. Recon would be 9-11 months this spring... but I can't see any reason NOT to enter him if it's allowed? There's not nearly as much training involved as agility, for example, that you need to prep before showing.
