Questions on Sacramento
This would only be our second competition, our first being the NV State Fair, and we were thinking of going possibly just Sunday, but I had a few questions I was hoping someone could answer.
1. Is it OK to jump them in 50 degree weather? Katie (my golden retriever) just turned a year and never really grew a winter coat so we have been pretty careful about not letting her get to cold (sometimes she starts shivering if she is out to long) any suggestions on this? I know she would love to go but to me the most important thing is her and if I am endangering her by letting her get wet and cold... well I don't even want to think about how awful I would feel if she got sick, or am I just being a worry wort and she is a strong dog and will be just fine?
2. Are they doing vertical jump at this competition? I didn't see it on the list with any of the waves. We really want to try it as Katie's favorite trick is to run at our glass sliding door (you should see the mud on that thing) she has gotten so good at it her nose goes above the top door jam. I think that is high but really don't know so would like to try it. (and vertical jump has got to be safer/better for her then face planting into our door, and yes we have try to deter her from it but she only does it when we aren't by the door)
3. Anyone know about driving over the mountain problems (live in Reno)? I heard there is a big storm coming this weekend, we have an SUV but no snow tires or chains so want to make sure we are prepared for the worst. But would rather no have that expense if possible.
Any help/suggestions to the above questions would be great, obviously the sooner the better so we can make plans to go if we can.
