Entry open dates

I know this is a very silly thing to worry about. I use to do agility with my older dog and entries were never excepted early, but trials always filled up, so just wondering.

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, early entries, if accepted, are counted as being received on opening day (postmarked date). In some regions trials are more than full on opening day. So, even if you get your entry in on time, you may not get into the trial if your name does not get picked in the lottery.
IOW, send your entry in as soon as you can, but if you forgot it never hurts to ask the trial host if there is space left.

Your entry should be treated the same whether you send it early (when allowed) or on the opening date.
