    DefaultOne more Utility question please!!!

    I'm unclear on the two part exercises (go outs and scent articles). Can I reward, play, talk, to Ruger in between these exercises? Example, after I send him for the first scent article, and he returns, and finishes and judge says, "exercise finished". I can assume we are free to relax a moment until the judge asks us "are you ready" and judging begins anew. Am I right? Thanks.

    Just wanted to add.. can you tell I'm starting to freak out a little bit ;D

    I can't answer your question of course, but just wanted to say - "take a deep breath and have fun with your dog" ;D

    You are correct ............ I just keep the praise very low key and don't let Kona get crazy.

    You will be fine ......... just remember that if he NQ's , use the rest of your time in the ring as training (within reason).

    Yes, you can talk to them between the two parts. Watch the judge cause some don't give you a lot of time between the two parts.
