Hopefully it was just the atmosphere and environment, and she will go back to being herself at your regular trials. Congratulations on going, running, and finding your own successes!
Thank you for the kind words and the anecdote, BB. I was pretty bummed at first, but then I watched the video of our first run, realized it was nowhere near as bad as I thought it was, and talked to others whose dogs have had the same issues their first times there (or at similar events). It was nice that everyone I spoke to was so supportive. I am glad I went at least once. And if it doesn't mess with her trialing up here I wouldn't be completely opposed to going again one of these years
