I lost one dog in the first for line manners. Which she should have got dropped. Then my second dog pointed out in the third. After all the horror stories I heard I was leary of running. Now that I have been, I had a blast. I have never walked off the line after not making it smiling until the third series of the Grand. I feel like it was judged very fair. Honestly there are some dogs that don't need to be there and that contributes to the pass rate. A very trusted friend and fellow pro told me if you have 300 points and also hold a Master title you should do well at the Grand. It is definately not a place for a green 100 point dog. All you can do is train hard and Pray just as hard.
