I pulled my first dog in competition at 14 months, and I think I burned her out on it to where I ended up retiring her after she got her UWPCH. My current dog is 2.5 years old and I've been doing a lot more build-up with her with less emphasis on pushing her to the bitter end, and I already feel like I'm seeing a lot more potential out of her.
thank you! =)
