Take my poll, please

I’m thinking about auditing a big, multi-day agility camp in July here in CO. (Clearly, a working spot is out of the question.) Time is running out to decide. So, what do you think?

Assuming I can work out the not working thing for that week, assuming I can indeed afford the expense, and assuming that some day I really will compete with either Lilly (or some dog to be named later), I’m still stumped about what to do.

I’m sure I would learn great things. I’m equally sure none of them will help me turn Lilly around.

And, I’m somewhat worried about feeling like the little sister who cannot keep up, even more than I usually do.

I’m torn between taking action now no matter what or holding out hope that next year Lilly will improve enough to make camp make more sense. Currently, my hubby thinks it’s a ridiculous idea.

What do you think?

You can use the feedback poll thing down below to vote. It’s intended to rate various entries, but we can use it as a voting mechanism.

I’d need more information about the camp before I could really say but in general I always feel that any training seminars are worth auditing. Just try to figure out if what they’re teaching would make sense to Lilly if you started using it. it’s so easy to just switch horses in mid-stream and wind up confusing the poor dog in the process.
