Re: Torn meniscus

I tore a meniscus in my left knee as a teenager, long before I took up agility. Since I didn't realise what I'd done, I didn't see a doctor and only had surgery several years later, when I got fed up with my knee locking at intervals and having to straighten it painfully and with some force. The su...

Re: Agility dogs lost near Edinburgh

Fantastic news - both dogs have just been found safe and pretty sound. Thank you to everyone who went out in the rain to help the owners to search, and to everyone who offered support in whatever way they could. The agility community at its best! :clap:

Agility dogs lost near Edinburgh

For those who are not on Facebook but live in the Edinburgh area, a plea to keep your eyes open for 2 agility dogs who went missing today at lunchtime. Fiona Turnbull's 2 dogs, Cassie the Weimaraner and Corrie the German Shorthaired Pointer, went missing at The Glen, Gorebridge, Edinburgh, and there...

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

I totally agree with what Mary's said above, but would also like to add that agility has progressed a lot since the days when dogs started their agility career by simply being put over the obstacles with the handler keeping their fingers crossed. A lot of work now go into foundation work which, if d...

Re: Show schedule release poll

In the pre-Internet days when I started doing agility, you often had to stalk people from the various clubs to get hold of a schedule as they were handed out at shows. We used to get some that way but more commonly you'd send an SAE off to the show sec. At our club we took it in turns ... when you...

Re: Show schedule release poll

The large number of different sites where schedules are posted really seem like a step backwards. In the pre-Internet days when I started doing agility, you often had to stalk people from the various clubs to get hold of a schedule as they were handed out at shows. Then, for some years, virtually al...

Re: Correction Aids at Shows

Well put, Pam. I'm only too aware of the effect noise can have on dogs, and how impossible it is to predict which dog will be affected by what - Frosty hasn't just got a problem with people behaving aggressively towards their dogs, but also hates military aircraft and any kind of shots being fired....

Re: Correction Aids at Shows

Can dogs who are fearful of clickers be desensitised by, for example, offering better rewards? I know it may sound selfish, but I'd rather have someone use a clicker while queuing and working positively with their dogs than have my dog terrified by someone constantly shouting and nagging at their do...

Re: Agility Eye Magazine - The End

The end of an era. I remember buying the first ever copy of Agility Eye from Graham at the Waldridge Fell/Wolsingham show, and I believe I've still got it somewhere!

Re: cheque alternatives

iSS isn't an option if you live up north. Very interesting that the Halifax still issues cheque books automatically - I'm with HBOS, and have to request one when I run out.

Re: never done agility older dog

Nothing wrong with starting agility with a mature dog, provided that it's fit enough. Several of my dogs have been adults before they started agility training (or even foundation work), and I've found them surprisingly easy to train - none of the ups and downs of adolesence for starters! My current ...

Re: dog beds

I, too, have had problems with condensation building up in plastic beds, but only when I've used them on cold, hard floors - presumably it's the difference in temperature between the cold flooring and the dog's body that is the source of the problem. Anyway, I don't use plastic beds anymore and have...
