We are headed to our first dock event on 9/17 in Tacoma, WA. I'm real excited but have a few questions that I can't seem to find answers to on the internet. If our wave starts at 130pm what time should we show up? I know we will be able to acclimate the dog to the new surrounding and be able to practice. I just dont' know how to plan for the day. Any suggestions on anything for a newbie?
Have fun. That is the most important thing. They will usually post when the dock opens for practice...do not over practice...just enough to get a feel of the dock and to get the dog excited...if you overdo it...the dog will be too tired and not run well.
Make sure you time your throws for nice launches....
oh...and have fun!
