I have two lab some thing something mixes. LOL. I have no idea what they are. The mom was a lab mix and thats all i know. Im looking for something to channel my dog energy into. They dont have to be good at it or win compitions. I just want some thing fun to do with them.
digger check out your local dog obedience schools. many are now offering agility classes. to see a list of agility competitions in your area look up NADAC on google. they are a huge sponsor of agility trials for mixed breed dogs.
Digger, this is a good link for agility info. http://www.dogpatch.org/agility/ I've always wanted to try agility for our dogs. It looks like a blast! Does anyone here do agility with their dogs? How and where did you get started? ltlgto
ltlgto - scout does agility. we are beginners and just learning so we don't compete. i got a million hysterical and also embarassing stories about the 2 of us in class. she loves it so much so i keep going back and humiliating myself.
Try out these links for weightpull info: http://www.doggpower.com http://www.pulldoggies.com A few weightpull organizations to look into are the IWPA and the APA The UKC holds weightpulls as well Good luck and welcome to the wonderful world of weightpull!
Scout1, I bet it's fun! I need to try to find an agility training place near-by. I think the one place in town that offered it closed down. My wife bought a kids tunnel type toy for outdoors for our dogs. About 8' long and 18" tall. Our dogs love to run through that. The biggest problem is, we have it next to our deck, and when someone was in the tunnel, the standard puppies took to jumping off the deck on top of the tunnel. We've taken our toys to handling class and they have that elevated walk way (whatever it's called) and after a couple nervous times going over it, they all loved it.
Thanks for all the sites and stuff. I think weight pull will be really fun for Digger. He gets short bursts of energy and then he is all set for a nap. Elie on the other hand would be perfect for agilty. She may be a bit big and clumsy but she has so much energy. If i put a gate up she stands on the other side and just jumps up and down in place. Its hilarous to watch.
Lol!!!! I just responded to someone's question that I was not sure if anyone knew about this. Stupid me, I should of known better I hope that he comes back and see's this. I think that I should give him the link to this one.
