    DefaultEntering trials...does anyone ever...?

    I am only asking this because it seems like my friend with the IW mentioned doing this once...

    Does anyone ever get to a trial and, on a whim, decide to enter their dog in another event? It seems like Anna said something like, she had Willie entered in Novice A obedience and then decided after she got there and he was having a great day to enter him in Rally Novice A as well.

    Did I misunderstand? I thought once it was closed, it was closed. Or is it a thing that, if they have room, they will let you come on in?

    Once a trial is closed, it is closed. No new entires will be accepted.* Sometimes (but not always) they may allow move ups (from one level to another...Novice to Open for example but not Obedience to Rally or A to B).* Matches often allow day of show entries but not official trials.

    Many people will enter any event they feel they may be ready for then scratch once they decide for sure.* *Sometimes that is the day of the trial.* All they lose is the entry fee. I like my hard earned money so I don't enter unless I think we are ready.

    Maybe your friend entered both events and was trying to decide if she wanted to compete in Rally.* Got to the show site, decided the dog was working well then decided to stay in the class.* That would be my guess anyway.

    OK Lydia, thanks, that probably is what happened. I thought I must have misunderstood that somehow.

    Unless she was talking about a match. I think those you can sign up for on the day of the event. Maybe UKC? I know for UKC you can sign up for conformation on the day off...maybe it's the same for obedience.

    UKC doesn't have Rally quite yet but should soon. SomeUKC shows have had Rally but they were seperate fropm UKC and hosted by other organizations.
