We were the only ones that showed up. Played 2 of the games, Jumpers and Wildcard. I understand Wildcard a bit more, and think it is something that we can do. Both dogs did awesome, and it was free to boot!!
The guy putting it on is a USDAA judge (Jim). He was telling me what you do when you goto a show, and what to expect. He has 8 dogs, all of which that do agility. One of his cavaliers is 11 and still doing it! They've got 4 cavaliers, 1 papillon, a japanese chin, english toy, and I cant remember the other one.
I visited one of the instructors this past Saturday. I went with hubby and we were both less than impressed with the guy. He has "came up with his own training methods." He seemed very busy and the boarding kennel side was impressive. I felt very uneasy with him. I am not an easy person to intimidate, but I almost felt as if he was trying to do just that. He kept rattling off terms and big words like he was trying to stump me and make me ask him what he was talking about. Then I started asking him questions that he couldn't answer. He is also not affiliated with any clubs. He sometimes works with clubs, but not members with any. So even though he was very close to me, lives and operates in my hometown, I think I will pass. I am going to visit a huge agility and flyball club this next weekend that is affiliated with AKC and several specialty groups. And they have more dogs like mine, SMALL in stature, HUGE on attitude. Kinda like me! =) Thanks for all the great advice. It would have been so hard without so much great input!
Add: My babies are Sid, the westie, 3 months, Bella the black scottie 3 months, and Beau the wheaten Scottie, he is the baby at 2 months. We are almost (just kidding here) not sure Beau-Beau is a Scottish Terrier. He is the most laid back terrier we have ever owned. Most of the time he looks like a mini wheaten dog skin rug with these two little eyes watching the other two spaz out. Until he hears "Treat!" Then he is just a blonde streak to the kitchen! LOL
