Default Showing too early?

The question of when to show in dog agility is quite controversial. I have an article that may provoke some good debate. I strongly believe a team needs to be running on all cylinders before entering the ring. The ring is a stressful place, and the dogs must understand their job BEFORE entering the ring. The trial ring isn't a place to "train."

Do you agree or disagree?

Great topic! If you'd share your thoughts, here, instead of linking to your website, then I wouldn't have to enforce the site owner's Terms of Service. I know it's a pain, but them's the rules.

Shoot. Well it's a great topic and I thought it would generate some good discussion which I was looking forward to. Unfortunately, I can't rewrite the article here as it's not on my "personal" website, but on a website that is owned by someone else. They won't allow me to reprint it on line anywhere.

Sounds like a good topic to me too. Too bad you can't copy it to here.

You can do what I do, copy the whole article and paste it into here
That way they can read and debate it.. you just can't link it..
