Dont Miss! Can kids be handlers?

Post by katietodd on Wed Feb 15, 2012 9:04 pm

Hi, I am new here. We are hoping to visit the show in Grand Rapids in March. My son will be12 and he has a 2.5 yr old lab.

First, is this an event that a newbie could try out at? Then if it is, could my son be one of the handlers allowed on the dock? We have never attempted this but really think the dog (and us) would enjoy it. She is an awesome dog that loves to be in the water and to just please us humans. We live 1.5 hrs north of Grand Rapids and would probably come down for the day.

thanks.

Our son started helping us on the dock the first event he was home from Guatemala. He is adopted. He was 13 months old and in a kid backpack on my back! Sweet! He has been on the dock with us ever since. Last year as a 4 year old was his first year throwing the toy for our dog Rajah. HE LOVES IT!!!!! We will be in GR jumping as well. see you there!
