I was wondering if it might be a good idea to enter Open B on a saturday and then Utility A the next day, as a way of doing an Utility debut? I know its a waste of moneyfor an extra open leg, but I was thinking it might help a dogs confidence in doing Utility if they had success in the ring at the same trial the day before? I know if Amber gets stressed out, asking her to do simple stuff she knows how to do really well helps reduce her stress. I see confidence and stress as the biggest problems in Utility and adding a new show site to that might be too much for some dogs?
Does this seem like a reasonable thing, or am I just over thinking it?
