Question Working Trials

Does anyone compete in working trials? This is something I am considering for Fred... never done, watched or even considered it before, but want to give everything a go and decide which one we gel with Plus I know the trainer we're seeing competes with her dogs, which I suppose helps.

Err... No. There's 3 sections. Nosework, agility and control. Based on police work, but done for competition.

Ah, no input from me then, I don't believe we have that here in the US. Very interesting!

Closest here I'm guessing would be IPO, which is tracking, obedience, and protection.

There's no protection element I don't think. To be honest I was hoping someone would be able to give me some insight!!!

It sounds like 3 day eventing, but for dogs

What is the control part? I figured that was protection, but guess not! lol

I was going to at one point ... But I'm not entirely sure how to teach tracking so I ended up not doing it. Unfortunately that's the closet I ever got to it although they're brilliant to watch! You should go for it especially if you've got a good trainer!

Obedience, recalls, heeling, etc.

I think this explains it better

That's definitely not what I was expecting!

Your nosework is our tracking. Our nosework is more like bomb detection without the bombs, dog is off-leash to find a "source".

The agility is not like what our agility is, but I believe the UK has an agility sport that is very very much like what our normal agility is, which is a times obstacle course.

The control section is really interesting.
