That is one thing that I adore about this city/area, SO MANY DOG THINGS! There is always something going on. Eventually Siri and I will get to play too!

There are events that happen minutes from our apartment all year long, which is just crazy! Two facilities within 10 minutes, another within 15!

That's just right by our apartment! The twin cities is just jam packed with dog stuff, it's kind of awesome!

Almost makes it worth the whole, extra-long frozen water season, thing.

I'm hoping to make it to MN this year again. Just depends on a couple other trips, puppies, etc. It's been a year and a half since my last visit, yeesh.

Question for those of you who do agility. HOW do you remember the course? That is my biggest fear, I am going to screw up the order. LOL Its something I would kind of test out with Phoebe and see how she does.
After two decades of remembering horse show courses and dressage tests, my head wraps around agility courses pretty easily. The one thing I can't do is use course maps - spatial relations are really hard for me, and while it doesn't confuse me to look at the map, it also doesn't really help me. But I can walk a course 3 times and be good. At Cynosport (as well as most big national comps), the course walks were all first thing in the morning. So you'd go walk two or three courses between 7 am and 8 am, and might not run until mid to late afternoon. I did usually take one last look at the map before that!

Hey, we trial at All Dogs all the time! I don't think I recognize you though; I think I'd remember such a fast Rottie! He looks wonderful.

At regionals and nationals here they open all the rings for an hour for walking in the am and then right before you compete in that event they give you the standard 10 minute walk before. I honestly really like it

In training I rarely use numbers to follow a sequence, so that helps to remember where to go.

Like Sara, I break courses down into sequences and then put it all together. When competing, after I have walked and ran during the walk through, I step aside, close my eyes and run it in my mind. Then I shadow handle it with my imaginary dog with my eyes closed. Probably looks weird but it works for me. I know if I can't visualize it, then I will have trouble

I also have to be precise. If I am over tired or it is the end of the day and I am being lackadaisical by following the herd during the walk though, that spells trouble lol. Nothing worse than being part of the walk of the wildebeest (what I call everyone walking a course following each other and doing the same thing

Hahahahah! I hate the herd. I always cut to the end of the course or walk the dog's line first to avoid the herd.

I try to let everybody get started ahead of me and let the herd thin out before I start walking. I'm not a fan of being all clustered up like that, it kind of triggers some claustrophobia stuff. =P It's also super awkward when you're part of the herd and EVERYBODY is walking it the same way, and then you're over here walking it differently. And everybody is looking at you like "that is totally the wrong thing to do you freak." Yes well. Thank you for your opinion on how to handle my dog that you've never even met. I appreciate that.
