Re: Clicker Training in Agility

Re: thoughts on pet agility...

We have a fairly local "fun" class and we have been approached by several of their clients claiming that their dogs can do agility, only to find that they all need to be retrained from step 1 as they are nowhere near as good as they have been led to believe. yep absolutely. It is very m...

Re: Is Tea Tree Dangerous to Dogs?

Yep it must be used in a diluted form. It is listed as really toxic to cats and can be fatal if ingesteed and thus is a possibility for small dogs too. Using too much on the skin can cause allergic reactions.

Re: thoughts on pet agility...

We take anybody at our training group and even if they are just doing it for fun, we still use standard equipment and still train them as if they were going on to competition all the competitive classes teach anyone, for fun or for competition it makes no difference. All our dogs are pets. But the...

Re: A win of sorts

I realise that to Large dog handlers this situation seems amazing, but classes for smaller dogs can be quite tiny, especially it seems in Grade 2! oooooh! I was wondering how it was possible. I've had the fastest time before but been placed something like 68th cos I had one teeny weeny little pole...

Re: Doctor Who

thoughts on pet agility...

Just wondering about your opinions on pet agility, with dog owners getting interested in agility with their dogs after watching it on TV many clubs and private trainers now offer it. I took one last summer because I found my club running one and they had no idea at all and it really wasn't safe so n...

Re: Need some ideas - USA

Anybody know of nice cheap places to stay, hire cars etc? compared to over here it's all CHEAP! Cities like New York are best on for and public transport, outside the city you can just drive and stop over at motels, they tend to be cheaper if you pay as you go rather than pre booking from here.

Re: Snow!!

Wow some people got some great snow shots. Ours melted before we were awake enough to think of taking a photo. Shame cos the dogs love the snow but so far they've never had more than a rare light sprinkling to enjoy. Makes them extra silly.

Re: What agility do you do?

I never know where the shows are when I read through the show listings. Until you learn through time and experience what shows are where it's be really helpful if shows were listed by their locations to make it easier to find the more local shows. ( oh ignore that I just found agilitynet and they ...
