Local golden retriever club has a junior/senior test coming up. I am debating entering my dog. Here is our background:
Our main focus is competition obedience. My dog has been force fetched, will deliver to hand, and has run just enough marks in his life to be familiar with what's going on. He has never had a live flyer and he will cheat on water when given the opportunity.
I have no plans on doing senior work, and it isn't a big deal to me if we don't get a JH. It is unlikely we will ever get any higher training than what he currently has.
So one side of me says don't set a dog up for failure, but the other side says since I have no real aspirations in the sport and just thought it would be something my guy would have fun doing for a weekend, what's the worst that can happen.
Thoughts on entering?
