That is a NICE facility! Maybe, despite what I just said, Frankie and I should check out agility...
LOL It gets super hard to balance sports and their time commitments, that is one of the reasons we dropped Flyball and I don't have any kids! Plus we recently decided to say thank you and no to the horse we have been riding/we were going to buy, the dog stuff takes too much time and money already!

Dock Dogs is *EXPENSIVE*.

However, we're probably going for our APr titles (O & P, no T) because of the hard-to-track resources we have here so I may just start sleeping in anyways.

You should come out here! I know Gary would be thrilled and we'll be happy to help you get started!

You two look so great though, and I'm really loving seeing agility videos. I'm jealous y'all can train outside. We still have snow.
I couldn't agree more about the lack of confidence I have in myself and her. :x Hopefully I can learn to let go a bit as time goes on and it will help us out a lot! Thank you for the advice, I appreciate it.

Hahaha, thank you, herding is such a mystery to me still. I would love videos of your training some day. I'm super intrigued!

You guys look great, though I don't know much about agility either. It looks like so much fun, I would love to do it one day.

Hahah yeah, thanks, Denis has flair for extra long videos and usually a bunch of silly commentary. I'm surprised he stayed quiet this time.

Good to know about the price! I'll probably just try it out for fun this summer since I finally found somewhere for them to jump. If either of them show any super dog skills then maybe I will consider it for next year.

I hate getting up early too but it's a little easier for me during the spring and summer, so hopefully I can get my butt out of bed. Riley especially loves tracking so I'd like to get back into it.

It was really hard for Psyche and I too. What I really found that helped with Psyche was to do a really simple course (like, one change of direction) and just RAM. Her skill level seems plenty high enough to handle a course like that () and that way you could just focus on RUNNING!
