CPE is a lot of fun. enjoy. have you run in other venues, AKC, NADAC? CPE is very relaxed. don't forget to take the collar off your dog. volunteer for jobs. ring crew gives you the best seat in the house and allows you to see how others run the course. judges are friendly and want to answer your questions, so ask if confused. you will get the hang of snooker, really, you will. remember it's just a game and run like you stole it and have fun with your dog.

First trial ever. Never ran any other venue. What Ive heard is that it's the most relaxed venue. Thanks so much for your tips!

Well....2 Q's!!! Fullhouse and standard! I messed up snooker, and jumpers, he decided to take his time and visit the bar setters. Overall, I'm super proud of my Pete!
