HINTS for the scoring programs:  Because of security features within Google,  we have been seeing some issues with the programs being downloaded incorrectly to your desktop. SO- once you click on the scoring program link below, it will take a little bit for it to upload.  Eventually, you will get an "open file" link.  Click on that link.  Be sure to enable editing.  You may see a pink warning line that gives you a security warning.  Regardless,  YOU MUST SAVE THE FILE AT THIS TIME TO YOUR DESKTOP.    It is important that you do this.   It will likely not allow you to do anything else or if it does,  it will not have macros (or content) enabled.   SAVE IT PLEASE to your desk top before you continue on.   Once it is saved to your desktop,  it will likely ask again if you want to enable content or enable editing.  Say yes to both!     Please understand that we don't want to spread around any virus's and macros are touchy!  But those are what make the program work!    If you do not save it to your desktop,  it will likely not function correctly.  If you see a bunch of "0" down a page,  thats a clue that its not working right!   Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions.    There is a link listed below if you are new to the programs and would like to watch an instruction video.    Mel 

 Also note:   When you are done with a trial,  please upload the completed trial paperwork on this web site under the Canine Team Certifications tab.       Thank you so much!
