I don't have any agility pieces! If Inara's flyball classes go well I'll be getting some flyball hurdles. You should do basic obedience classes online too, or tricks, or stuff like that!!!

I say all that as though it's nothing at all for you to sit down, prepare a lesson plan, and get it all online, as well as care for your phenomenally handsome/gorgeous puppers!

Pshaw, slacker! :wink:

Hmmm, if the Gremlin was good at Daycare today, I'll have a look at it with her.

That kid is addicted to agility and I have the bruised shins from tripping over her "course" to prove it.

LOL I know I'm just getting old and lazy. I haven't competed for years. I need to get my butt back in gear :)

You don't need any equp to start really just stuff you probably have around the house, even a flight of stairs and an ice cream lid becomes a contact trainer... take a peek

I have seen the magazines you have been in and you are far from old and lazy. I don't know how you do it all.

I had gone through your free online agility class and had fun with it. It wasn't hard at all.

Thanks...
I'm glad it was OK. It was kind of hard getting everything I wanted in writing, it is much easier to work hands on with the dogs

I tried a while ago but I never got my email conformation and when I try to register says my email is already taken. If I try to reset password it says I never validated. I would love to try it out.

sounds good... don't forget to check your spam folder for the registration info that is why some have trouble registering. It seems it goes to the spam folder if you have that setting on

We are up to 248 people that have viewed and or taken class from all over the world. It is pretty cool looking at where everyone is from

This is so cool!

Last week, I emailed my other half instructions on making equipment out of PVC (he is a plumber). We talked about it over the weekend. Now we have some training instructions to go with the equipment. We want to get Maddie involved in something to build up her confidence and something her and i can do to build our bond.

Thank you so much.
I just signed up so hopefully I will be getting an email.
If I don't, I will post here.

Thanks again
