    Defaulttiming

    Okay- total newbie question-

    Gabby and I are driving to Des Moines friday am - a 7 hour drive- and doing rally at a show there while visiting my brother.

    The walk through is at 1. But I don't think we're going to make that.

    The question is this: If the walk though is at 1, and there are 72 dogs entered in excellent, and advanced before us, what time should i be there? i don't want to sit around with gabby for hours, but I also don't want to miss it.

    thanks!

    The walk-thru that is at 1, is it for the excellant? They should do walk-thru for each class but they can combine the A and B classes. Does that help at all?

    Yes, there is a walk-through for each class. So you need to look on your schedule to find when Novice shows. At our shows, if more than 2 hrs passes between the B and A classes (it averages 22 dogs an hour), so if the B class runs more than 2 hours, then A will usually get a walk-through as well.

    But that depends on the judge. Been to some where the A and B's had the walk-thru together, so don't necessarily plan on a separate walk-thru. Better to get there and have to sit than to have missed it.

    I talked to the show secretary today. He said that since excellent starts at 1ish, he thought I should be there by 3:30 just in case it's running fast. he also said i have to go first in my class! eeek!

    That's good advice to arrive by 3:30pm. Figure with course changes and walk thrus Novice probably won't start until 4pm - that may be aggressive - 4:30pm is more like it but sometimes dogs don't show up - or there are fewer walk thrus then you think there will be.
    Susan is right - often judges walk the A's and B's together since there are usually nowhere near the number of A's as B's. This way you can get settled - potty your pup - look at the course map and watch a little of the Advanced to get a feel for what the course might look like. DO NOT let anyone rush you, particularly if you are 1st. Take a deep breath - kiss your pup and off you go. That way the long wait will be for your green ribbon and not to go in the ring. Good luck.
