  2. Day of the week AND the numeric date(s) (mm/dd)
  3. <your name>/<your dog's call name>

    Tuesdays are for advanced handlers and dogs working on the big field only. Although Rich begins at 10 AM, many people have already
    requested the earliest slots, so usually the first available openings are after lunch, but you need to review the latest draft schedule for each specific date.
    Please do NOT simply request one time or a one-hour window, since we need to minimize messages exchanged as we try to accommodate everyone. Inflexibility can result in no lessons scheduled.
  11. Indicate whether your dog's lesson will be in the Puppy Pen (for new and beginning herders).
You can submit scheduling requests for as far ahead as you can reliably commit to participate within the time ranges you provide.
Requests will be given priority in the order they are received, so if you have inflexible scheduling needs, we recommend that you submit your requests early.
