DOTC March Trials / Show
If anyone would like to sponsor a Special Prize at the March DOTC trials, please contact DOTC President Gail Phillips: firstname.lastname@example.org
Training Session 3 begins on Wednesday, 1/30. Sign up this week, January 23, if you haven’t already.
We’re trying something new. The Rally Intermediate/Advanced class will meet at 6:30. Rally Novice will also meet at 6:30. After “Heeling/Proofing”, there will be a new “Rally Novice 2” for folks who’ve learned the signs, but want/need more practice before trialing. You’ll refine your performance of the Novice signs and learn how to string them together, like on a course!
