Ares did obedience, agility, herding, narcotics detection. Morgan did obedience, herding and therapy work. Both are now retired, so they pretty much just hang out and occasionally do some tricks just for the brain exercise.

Tyr does obedience, he used to do bitework, but I haven't gotten him to training in a while and I'd like to get him back into tracking. I'm beginning to dabble with freestyle with him.

Nyx is struggling to learn obedience and I want to get her to herding training.

I'd also like to get back into agility and do some rally at some point. I'd love to do disc dog, but I'm horrible at throwing a frisbee.

Hey, if your dog has to learn something new, why shouldn't you?

We're doing agility lessons with Lucy, but I don't think it will ever be competitive (when it becomes competitive it loses all fun for me). I also want to get involved with the therapy dog group in the area--I just have to wait until their monthly training is a day when I'm in town! They have a lot of neat facilities they visit, ranging from nursing homes for calmer dogs to after school groups for at risk kids where the more hyper dogs (aka Lucy) can run around and chase each other.

Mostly though, she's just a companion for us. We take her hiking, take her to dog friendly restaurants, take her to public festivals and parades and other outdoor things.

Hiking, beach trips, couch potato olympics.

I would love for our next dog to be able to do agility.

We like to hike A LOT. We are going to be starting obedience classes either next month or in August. I'm just debating on whether or not to take the classes at the community college or to pay more and do it with the club.

Our goal is to do agility and dock diving. Maybe some tracking.

We've done, Jrt racing, G2G, Conformation, Trailing & Locating (tracking Jrt style), Lure Coursing and Super Earth at trials. Hunting. Agility, played at Rally but only in fun matches haven't gone sanctioned yet. Did Dock Diving once, that was also fun.
Would like to do more Rally and Dock Diving.

Our main sport is dogsledding which includes scootering and rigging to keep them in shape when there is no snow on the ground. The dogs also love running next to the bike, intense hiking (sometimes with a weighted backpack), playing with the flirt pole (a current favourite), weight pulling, informal therapy work, running errands (they come right into the stores with me which requires strict manners of course) and lately Ronan has had a thing for swimming especially in thise heat! Don't tell Ronan but next UKC Premier there is a chance he will be competing in conformation...maybe...and weight pulling! Would love to try lure coursing some time too.
