You probably wouldn't have the issues we have because in veterans in USDAA you have to run masters. To me it is dumb because just because Summer is old doesn't mean she's run agility very long either.

Meh.

TDAA will let you try the weaves a few times and they were fine with it. I figure that might be how it goes- just get her some more experience doing poles in the trial.

Oh, right. I guess I did know that. And yeah, not an issue for Meg. USDAA obviously meant it as a step-down division. They do make some weird choices, as do all venues. I know I called out NADAC, but it certainly isn't the only one that makes calls I don't agree with!

We'll see. I probably won't step her down this year. We only have a few more trials anyway, and then I need to figure out what I'm doing for the winter, since our usual go-to indoor site isn't an option anymore.

TDAA is strange in that veterans aren't separate at all. So I go up against all the 8" dogs (you are still classified as your measured height).

TDAA also gives exemptions to long bodied dogs. I've never seen another organization do that before either.

I guess they all do things differently.

I feel like before I was even competing, I saw a list somewhere of dogs that got exemptions - it was long bodied dogs, but also things like Berners and tall/heavy dogs. I can't for the life of me remember what that was for, though.

Well... after staring at my bank account and having a discussion with my mom (doing this means no trial this month which means I can't/won't be running Georgie) I have entered Payton in the Stuart Mah seminar in Chicago in a few weeks. We'll have a hell of a day, waking up at 4:30am and driving up there, but hopefully it will be worth it. I really need somebody knowledgeable to see the dog, and not somebody who's going to tell me the best course of action is to punch him in the face when he blows a contact or something like that... so... I'm hoping we'll learn a few things and get some helpful insight.

I will have a few of my dogs, but we won't be competing. I have a disc seminar that weekend that we are attending, I just want to stop by the nationals to catch up with my agility peeps.

Well that's awesome! We will definitely have to meet up. I'd love to meet any dogs that may be tagging along. And maybe hear about this disc seminar!
