Re: Curiosity Question

It seems to me that the majority of those who claim it would be easy to introduce an optional 4th height have never been involved at the sharp end of running a show of any size. No one claims it will be easy. I don't think any organisation is comparable to KC agility...I can fully understand wh...

Re: Curiosity Question

Side bar question(we'll return to our regular scheduled programing in a moment) Here in the states, AKC and USDAA agility are the big organizations and others like NADAC, CPE, TDAA, UKC while they have a following, they are often talked about as if they are pseudo agility.

Re: Curiosity Question

the issue that winds me up the most is the 4th jump height! Because i don't understand why the world is going to end if one is introduced. And I would be interested to see how the introduction of an optional 4th height will in reality totally destroy Britisk KC agility. I do hope all those who...

Re: Curiosity Question

Rubber contacts - love 'em! Although I do have to trim the dogs' nails more often now :D Should buy up the old ones as nail files! I'm gonna go standardisation on the contacts..on the grounds a dog can see a jump pole or a tyre so can make an 'informed judgement'...but they can not see or pred...

Re: hair or bone

h you see he was getting confused maybe with Rhino horns! :winking: Rhino horns differ from true horns because these horns have no core or sheath. They are made up of multitude of epidermal cells and bundles of dermal papillae, extensions of the dermis. Cells from each papilla form a horny fiber ...

Re: Grade 3 Problem

New people don't know this. They should know this if they get the support they should from the people they train with. Unfortunately it is obvious that too many newbies are left to sink or swim from the number we have to help out when they enter our shows and haven't a clue. You can't possibly...

Re: 4th Jump Height

They could just do what some of the US agility orgs do and offer a Standard 20" option or a Performance 26" option for all large dogs - plain and simple. All handlers then can decide for themselves what is best for their aims and ambitions and their specific dogs. If competitive large d...

Re: Grade 3 Problem

I think it's easy to forget how overwhelming and difficult it can be for new handlers to begin competing.If I'd had to start competing in G3 I would have given up instantly. Somehow I won up far too fast and my non viable dog was unfortunately swept into G3 with a new handler and it was very upsetti...
