In my opinion, it is three things.
1) some thing to compete for ( AKC FC/AFC, NSTRA multiple points champion, NAVHDA awards) the individuals that participate in these venues have a very achievable and attainable goal.
2) slightly less standard, which I love the written and unwritten rules associate with AF trials, however most cannot train a dog to those standards. Plus shoot to kill trials are fun.
3) poltics, don't think I need to explain
: Anyone have any ideas to spark up the intrest
: in trials.
: When I go to trials it seams to look like a
: old folks home at lunch time. This year you
: are there and next year the seats are empty.
: What is the trials future? How can the fire
: be lit again with all the excitement of the
: younger crowd.
: Please chime in don't show your age, you can
: still type.
: What is the future 10 years from now?
