Re: Encouraging an elderly dog to eat

Do you feed him separately? That might help with the guarding issues. But I think a vet check is a good plan considering his age.

Re: Smoking

I doubt it'll affect the dogs personally. Eating and dropping food whilst walking a course is more of a no no for me.

Re: Hello, I am new and in need of advice please

I'm a bit different as I'm rather more experienced in agility, but I have started a new dog. I always go for a trainer who trains to competitive standard but in a fun way with positive reward based training etc.

Re: Time off from agility???

I don't think it'll do you or your dog any harm :lol: it might feel like an empty space missing two classes but it would be just like before you started agility :)

Re: Waits & Weaves...

Just don't be competitive for a while? Throw a few runs or go to non kc shows where the judges may allow training in the ring or be more understanding and let you take your time on the wait, within reason?

Re: beginners question

Good point about practising queuing, although it might confuse some ring callers? They might refuse you to enter the queue if its too long.

An update

I haven't lurked on here very much but I thought I'll update the few peeps that are not on facebook. My two goldies are firmly now retired from agility, Amber did some training last year but it was for fun. I then thought of other ways to find another dog to train, owning another is out of the quest...

Re: beginners question

Graded classes means that the grades compete over the same course but the dogs are split into their own grades i.e. grade 1, grade 2 etc for the results and times, so therefore if you enter into grade 1, you are just competing against grade 1 dogs. I'd say if you wanted to start getting up the grade...

Re: Correction Aids at Shows

I have used a clicker in training classes around other dogs, my dog doesn't mind that sort of sound. But any sprays with air and metal being banged would certainly scare her. Once went to an obedience class and left because the trainer was banging tin trays to stop this other dog from lunging :no:

Re: Time between grades ????

No you're right, don't see why you have to stop going to shows and running in the old grade before 25 days is up.

Re: What can I do with Fleece?

Rally obedience? Very good fun my retriever was enjoying those as it kept her interested with the different exercises.

Re: Oldies & their habits

Bonnie's 11 now and she's certainly more lazy than she used to be. She's also got her sitting down and refusing to move habit on walks again that she used to do as a youngster. We know its not because of pain cause she doesn't appear to be stiff or limping.

Re: cheque alternatives

A lot more companies are now using PayPal as an option to pay which is what I prefer as I can still use a credit card number but only need one simple password rather than a long complicated one that my credit card co like me to set up and use
