Sam is a pet. I would love to try agility but it is a little beyond my budget right now. I love taking dogs on hikes and down to the beach, hopefully Sam will enjoy the water.....

You dont need a class, persay. If you have enough space, make some cheap equipment and practice on your own. Around here classes are not that expensive. I honeslty save up all my loose change and use it for class, works like a charm lol.

Broom handles int he ground work well as weave poles, make some small jumps, teeter totter wouldnt be to hard, a plank and somehting to balance it out on the bottom. Dont give up if you would love to try.

I dont have any space for anything. But I did buy 5 broom handles just so we can practices weave poles int he back yard. Its really not even big enough for it, but it helps a bit. wish we had proeprty.

No dog right now but with my future pit I'd love to do agility or dock diving. I will probably do rally as well. I would love to get him his Therapy dog title.

Uncle Fred and Mini do informal tracking. They are pretty amazing at it.

Uncle Fred likes to run next to a bike.

Otherwise they spend their time being our buddies.

Does sleeping on my feet count as an activity?

One day I would like to try Mini in agility. She is fast,fast,fast, and uncharacteristically enthusiastic about obeying commands for a beagle. Uncle Fred is as agile as a hippo. He was not designed for fast turns.

I don't have much space but I could try the weave poles. Or I could hi-jack my friends yard...hers is much bigger and her pup has dabbled in agility. All my 'spare change' goes to the other pets. :P

Zoey does Agility.

Bella is doing at home obedience, maybe someday agility.

Psyche does agility now, starting obedience, I'd like to do flyball, herding, and if I can find a place, dock diving, but I don't know if she likes water enough, or if people even do that around here.

Summer does agility, and did therapy work in the past. Beau did rally and conformation but it's been a while. Nard may do agility if he ever matures lol. We're starting training jumps with him.

The others are professional pets.

Summer and I do a lot of informal things like hiking, etc.

We like to walk with our dogs. We also GEO Cache with them............I don't know who likes caching more, the kids or dogs, LOL

Other than that, nothing but enjoy their company

Every time I mention GEO Caching, there is usually someone who may not have heard of it, so in the interest of that, I will explain real quick. GEO Caching is sort of like a treasure hunt. You go here Geocaching - The Official Global GPS Cache Hunt Site , get the coordinates for "caches" other people have hidden, type them into your GPS, then you're off! Most of the "treasures" are just a pen and paper to sign saying you found it. Some are little items........you take something, you leave something. It's all good fun, and completely free if you own any type of GPS Good exercise, and I would LOVE to teach the dogs to sniff them out! It would save me loads of time! hahahah

If you've never tried it............go have a look around that site! You'll be surprised at how many caches are in your area around the world and you've just found another activity to include your dog in!!
