Marsh is weaving 6 weave poles on a competition base pretty solidly. Solidly enough that I feel comfortable raising criteria to 2 sets of six poles (we are training via the 2x2 method). I have two agility trials planned for this year: One in two weeks at our home club where he practices every Tuesday outdoors on grass and one in December indoors on mats where I have been and trained, but Marsh has not. In October he's entered only in JWW, in December it's JWW and FAST (which is the best class). Novice always, so he'll only encounter 6 poles in competition. Should I work him up to 12 poles before or after he finishes Novice?
