For those of you not familiar with DACOF, it's a statewide agility competition comprised of teams from all over Florida. Indy & I have participated the last two years and it really is a lot of fun. However, last year I decided that I wouldn't be taking Indy to future DACOF events. As much as *I* enjoy the event, because of Indy's teeter issues, I realized that it wasn't fair to put so much pressure on her to perform an obstacle that I know she hates and only sees in a trial environment once a year.
I really didn't expect Peyton to be ready for this year's event, but since he's made such tremendous progress lately, we're going to give it a shot. I think it will be a big challenge for us, but hopefully it will be a great learning experience as well. This year it's at a new venue in Kissimmee and I've heard that it will be a little bigger than what we've had in the past - which is a good thing since it's a three ring trial! It will also be our first trial indoors. Yikes!
On a somewhat sad note, you (hopefully!) will not get to see a repeat of Indy's fast class performance from last year. If you missed it the first time, here it is again...
DACOF is held over the Fourth of July weekend this year - wow, I just looked at my calendar and realized that it's just 3 1/2 weeks away! We're going to have a really busy month as I'm entering Peyton in a night NADAC games trial on June 19th and I think we're going to be making a trip up to Perry for an AKC trial the weekend after DACOF. After that, I think we'll probably take the rest of July and most of August off from agility for a much needed mental/physical break. :)
