Re: clear round with time faults

I've been on both ends with this one. With my first agility dog, who only on rare occasions felt inclined to run flat out on an agility course (no rabbits or pheasants to chase you see), I remember a course time in an Intermediate Jumping class of 35 secs, set with Senior collies in mind no doubt, c...

Re: Dogwalk width-relating to injuries

I've seen some nasty falls off the dogwalk over the years, and I agree that for some larger dogs it's more like walking a tightrope.

What are other people's experiences with it?

Re: what is a healthy weight for a large border collie

I go by hands on ribs, spine and hip bones. If I can feel the ribs, spine, and hip bones, but not the part of the spine between the hip bones, I'm happy enough. If I can feel the spine between the hip bones, I feed more. If I need to go digging for the ribs, I feed less. :) Thinking about it, I sho...

Re: Low Protien/ fat Treats

I don't know how this will fit in with your dog's diet, but how about making livercake but substituting mashed banana for the liver?

Re: What can I do with Fleece?

How about finding a good Clicker class where they do lots of free shaping?

Re: Agility Eye Magazine - The End

As Kerstin said, the end of an era. The Eye accompanied me all the way through my competition years, and the results service you provided was remarkable. I've not competed much recently so I don't even know if there's anything else out there that provides remotely the same service. Agility will be ...

Re: Weaving Methods

Were the weaves pegged down at the indoor venue? If not, that could have been enough to throw her off doing the single stride.

Re: Real 4th height numbers

Just out of interest do you know the height of the dogs, as the 4th height supporters here are arguing that dogs measuring under 51 cm at the withers should jump lower then those measuring over 510 cm and that it is the dogs height that matter in relation to the jump heights. Interesting way of p...

Re: 4th height again!

........ and the people who want the change can then be instrumental in bringing it about and supporting it with actual entries. Jo As some of us did years ago in establishing that there was a need for Midi (now Medium) classes by supporting those few that were offered, even though it meant missi...

Re: 4th Jump Height

Even if it means clubs having to run an inter-club show or something along those lines, people don't mind helping out to pay for new equipment that they feel the benefit of! :) Yes, but will there be enough of them? Don't forget that the majority of people won't benefit from a fourth height - i...

Re: Grade 3 Problem

Some system whereby, whichever grade you have won up to, your new or other dog can run in the grade below it. With a common sense upper point so having a Grade 7 dog doesn't force your others to run in Grade 6. Oooh no, I wouldn't like that! Just because one dog wins up doesn't mean all your dog...

Re: Grade 3 Problem

The suggestion in another thread that new dogs start in Grade 2, leaving Grade 1 protected, is an option. If it is felt that would simply move the bulk down to Grade 2 (which in the short term would not be the case, only in the long run), then Grade 2 could be the start grade for other dogs belongi...
