Like I was told, relax and breath, treat as just another training session. Good luck and trust yourself and the dog.

Are you confident the dog can do the work. If you are then go with confidence to the line. You have put the training in and expect it to pay off. Let your dog know you are good to go by bieng very confident at the line. Your dog can sense your behavior and or mood. Be positive and have fun.

Over the years, each time I stepped up a level, I made a few dumb mistakes. I guess everybody does.......or maybe not !

All I can say is good luck, and enjoy it weather you pass or fail.

LDH,
I will be in Flight A. I am also Marshaling so I will wont have a lot of time to just sit around and worry about it.

I worry more about me that the dog. As long as I don't mess up, I think we will be ok.

Less then 2 years ago I was in the same boat, my first dog and my first master test. We failed the first 3 test, all handler error. We now have 6 ribbons on the wall along with a master certificate and we have moved on to FT qualifing. I am just glad that they don't do drug testing on handlers, I could be in trouble. :)
