Giving all they’ve got
Even though the dogs are the stars of the show and doing all the work during the Arctic Blast Terrier Trials, the two-day event isn’t just fun for the dogs.
“Conformation is the best part of the trials for me,” said Emma Howard, a 9-year-old handler from Springfield, Mo. “It is fun because you get to show your dog and answer fun questions. And barn hunt is good, too. But racing is the least fun because you have to run 600 feet every race.”
