Just curious - I was under the impression that you weren't allowed to move up a level at a trial - for example, if you got your Brevet, you could not then enter for the Ring 1. I know there are some specific circumstances where you can trial for both legs of the 1 at one trial, but when? Is it when you have two judges and two separate days? I've looked through the rulebook but I can't find it (probably because it's 95 pages long and my eyes blur halfway through ;) )

Just a thought - I hope to be ready by fall/winter for trial, but I'm going to have to do some serious traveling - probably fly - and I'd rather get as much accomplished in one trip as possible, you know?

you can do a brevet and the first leg of the one in the same trial. but the reason most dont move on is because both legs of the 123 have to be under different judges.

The moving up question has been answered, so I'll just address this.

The FRI, FRII and FRIII each require 2 legs for the title. Those two legs have to be under different judges. They do not have to be on seperate days though.

I've been to trials where they held one trial, with one judge (call him Judge A) in the morning, then another trial with a second judge (call him Judge B) in the afternoon. IF your dog had the stamina and training, you could have started with nothing in the morning, and have the first leg of your FRII by the afternoon. Brevet/FRI under Judge A, then FRI/FRII under Judge B. Other times a club will bring in 2 judges and do a trial with 1 judge on Sat and the other on Sun. It's the same possibilities, just spread out over the weekend making it more likely the dog will pass each level.

I enjoy reading about the different sports. It truly is an education to me as I've confessed my ignorance about sport. What is Brevet?

Thanks

I have two videos online of Brevet's, that include almost everything. All the exercises are there, I just clipped things like the long down. Instead of showing the entire thing (how boring LOL) I showed the first 5 seconds and the last 5 seconds (approx).

cool... not that we're ready yet, just thinking. Steve, when you move to NC, why don't yall form a FR club? Maybe then some of us wouldn't have to fly cross country to trial... ;) Yall are only three or four hours from me. Seriously, the closest ring club is in FL, 8 hrs. away from Augusta, and it's 13 or 14 hour drive to the next closest one. Being a poverty stricken student, it's expensive to hop a plane... it must be nice to live somewhere like California, where there's four or five trials a year within driving distance... sigh.

Chris Duhon isn't doing a lot of training now, anyway - he's competing in rodeos. And the MR club is just as far as the FR club is, and as far as I can tell, they aren't a particularly active club - don't host a lot of trials or seminars, etc.

I only drive about ten minutes to our club. Jerry and Jay drive less than that. And when we train at Matt's house, it's only like five minutes. I feel spoiled. :oops:

Oh but until I found our ASR club, I had to train schutzhund in Atlanta and drove 2 hrs one-way every weekend for a year. :(
