    Our club's test was this weekend. When it opened, master was filled in about a half hour. Some people were able to get in by watching the scratches on EE, but in the end we ended up with only 48...

    I wouldn't run any of my dogs in anything if they crept in training. If you can't stop it in training you'll be in a world of trouble at a test.
