Best Behavior

Have you ever attended a dog show? In person?

Yes, obedience and agility trials count. Often they are held separately of the shows focused on confirmation. But there are exceptions.

I’m always rather amazed that you have dozens and dozens of canines, owners, and random humans and the hall is QUIET. No obvious signs posted for the humans. And the dogs in general are alert and engaged, but avoid barking and whining.

It’s as if the dogs are aware they are in this place to work. Trot along on the lead. Allow the judge to examine their head. Share the ring with others. Or…in the case of agility trials.

Oh, great. I get to run, climb, dart through the tunnel, and jump over the rails. Can we do it again? Please?

Yes. I’ll do it.
