For me, nosework would be cheaper. Especailly since I could do much of the training on my own. I'd rather do agility and IPO and FR and herding but rally, obedience, tracking and nosework win due to the ability to train without traveling to classes and fewer equipment requirements.

CP when Nosework goes UKC, I have a friend who said she'd be trying to get her UKC performance club to host trials. The club is in the Stokesdale area, so quite doable for trials.

I really want to get into nosework with Rider, but I can't find any classes that I like around my area. Nor in herding. Blech. Sad.

From my understanding, it is a really good class/sport to get into with a lacking in confidence dog. Am I correct in that statement?

Yeah so far everything is stuff I could do on my own without a class. I just like classes because I like hanging out with dog folk (and the nosework class has people my own age, which is shocking!) I don't know how far I'll take the classes. Mia loves it so far but we're not on a scent yet, just treats.

But yeah, it'd be very doable on your own. There's not that much handling to it at all.

I never knew there was a UKC club in the Stokesdale area.

Not that it's all that useful since Tyr isn't allowed to play at UKC. But maybe Nyx can pull it off without eating the judge or destroying the entire search area... I suggest she go last.
