Something I forgot to tell everyone about the trial last weekend. I wasn't phased by it, but several pups were!
The trial was held at the training center here in town and it's located in an industrial warehouse, like many clubs are. Right in the middle of the ceiling of the course was a really, really big Industrial Fan! It was moving tons of air from the heater and circulating it throughout the indoor space, keeping it nice and warm inside throughout the building.
I had been there before and wasn't afraid of the fan, but some of the pups were not only kind of scared of it, but were terrified of it. Sure didn't help that the table was located just under the fan for the first run of the day.
Guess that's why it's important to be exposed to lots of different things, you just never know what you'll come up against on the course!
