I guess it wasn't very hypothetical :lol: Thank you for the explanation, and a big "duh" to me. :embarrassed:
Oh, I see! The sit, stay, walk around the ring is super challenging for us still. I'd say he stays 50% of the time. Not good enough for trial yet.Noelle has been practicing the Novice routine and has never practiced BN. So, the sit, stay walk around the ring is confusing. She knows Novice very well, so we're just gonna skip BN, just like we skipped RI.
We're going to a new obedience class and a new rally class in March. We will trial in both RE and Novice in either April or May. Cross your fingers!
Thank you for answering all my beginner-ish questions :love2:
with the new rules that went into effect last year, the sit, stay, walk around the ring in Beginner Novice is the hardest stay. I’m glad we have that under our belt. When you do do it, walk quickly, as fast as you can to minimize the time. So many people dawdle walking around the ring which just gives the dog more chance to break their stay.Oh, I see!

Are your new classes at the same club or a new one? I wish you lots of fun and luck We will be cheering you on.
