Default Wag It Games

Anyone hear of this? Seems kind of interesting... the same facility where our agility classes are held are starting these up in January.

I'm thinking about trying it.

http://www.wagitgames.com/

Here's what the class states:
Quote:
Level 1 - Wag It Games For Beginners: Class Description

Dive into Shadow Skills and No Need For Speed Obstacle Skills exercises in this class, with an introduction to Sniff It games. This class will have you well on your way to performing numbered courses in both Shadow Skills and No Need For Speed games, and loads of fun with your dog! The class structure allows for up to six dogs to work in the classroom simultaneously.
And here's some of the descriptions:

Shadow Skills - Get connected through ground work! Dog and handler teams perform a combination of rally, freestyle and agility handling maneuvers on a numbered course.


No Need For Speed Obstacle Skills - Advance your relationship by teaching your dog some tricks using props and obstacles. Build team work, confidence and skill with this game.


Sniff It - Learn more about your dog while developing his scent work skills. In Sniff It dogs must find food or light scent, and the scent of their handler.


Dog Ball - Further your relationship by teaching your dog directionals and how to control the movement of an exercise ball. Inspired by sheep herding, in Dog Ball the dog directs exercise balls through a course that includes gates and pens. This sport is fun for dogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes!

Agility Skills - Build communication and teamwork with your dog! Wag It Agility uses a lower A frame, and variations on other contact equipment that make it safe and fun for all dogs, offering a light competitive environment of camaraderie and support and ribbon ceremonies after each class.

Water Skills - Enjoy spending time in the water with your dog? In Water Skills dogs swim a designated course as directed by their handler.

It's all the rage around here, mostly because the woman that owns/runs it lives in Maine too (I've met her, she's really nice). I haven't yet seen any in action, there are classes and trials held locally all the time. To me, it looks like a venue with a ton of mini venues in it. Agility, nosework, tricks, etc.

They're holding a seminar on it up in Chicago. I considered going and getting teacher certified so I could train it but holy expensive Batman. We decided it was a better idea to just develop some fun games and trick classes on our own. =P
