BALANCING ACT!
Identifying challenges, and determining the best path for your dog.

Firstly you need to be aware of the types of challenges that exist, and identify them.
You need to know what strengths (and weaknesses) you and your dog have, what you have trained, and what you can confidently use to negotiate the challenges.
You need to determine which challenges pose the most risk (eg. a disqualification, refusal, pole down) and determine a plan of action balancing the risks vs speed.
