Emilu and I are entered in our second and third Rally shows this weekend. The club where we take our lessons is putting it on, so I'll be there Friday helping to set up, Sat and Sun, showing and being a ring steward for Rally (honor dog station) and then helping tear down. I am a little more nervous about this show because we are earlier in the day and won't have as much time to "get used to" the show atmosphere. I'm also afraid that my obedience instructor is going to want me to help out before we show, and I want that time to get Emilu used to things and practice a little with her. I've told the instructor that I won't be available till after I show, but I'm not sure she hears me. If all goes well, we just might have a title after this weekend (knock on wood).
How exciting! Good luck.
Remember, you and Emilu come first. All others need to stand in line. You paid money to compete in this trial so you tell them when you are available to help and stick to your guns.
Oh, Pat, that would be great! A new title. Hey, be firm if you don't want to do anything until after you show. This is still new to you so I think it's a good plan to focus on what you are doing.

Be firm, I tell my club that I won't help until I am done showing, and they are very accepting of that (We out on the obedience trials at the UKC Premier each year)
Ooooh!! GOOD LUCK EMILU AND PAT!!!! ;D I'll be sending good titling thoughts for you this weekend!
I agree with the others, say you'd love to help out, but after you show Emilu!!
good luck..and have fun
BEST OF LUCK, Emilu and Pat! Looking forward to hearing about the new title on Monday!
