Default What venues do you compete in?

Just what the title says... What venues do you compete in?

Do you like one over others? Why?

Poll to follow.

USDAA only for agility.

I've only competed in CPE so far with my older dog. Both dogs are registered with AKC so we can trial with them but I've yet to do so. I keep getting distracted by disc dog stuff...

The dogs and I have competed in AKC (Bailey), USDAA (we did Junior Handlers and Bailey did very few regular trials), CPE (just a couple trials), and NADAC (what we did the most of).

We did a lot more NADAC than anything else for a few reasons; 1)Most of my classmates did agility... I liked knowing people at trials, 2)I really like(d) the concepts of NADAC.

I still bring Buzz out for our APDT trials to play in veterans if he's feeling up to it but we haven't done anything other than that in years now!
I think the poll is asking specifically for agility, judging by the title of the poll

We focus in AKC for agility but i liked nadac and would do it again. I haven't tried USDAA or CPE, we're always doing something else those weekends it seems.

NADAC. We are doing a USDAA intro trial next month to support the friend who is running it, but the rest of our stuff (minus 1 trial here and there) is all NADAC.

We train under an AKC judge, so it's been tricky for us. AKC does not require nearly the distance/discrimination skills that NADAC asks for, and has a lot more sharp turns compared to the flowing NADAC courses. It has been interesting watching our shortfalls come out for this reason. I suspect that unless we start training NADAC specific challenges, we are going to peter out at the higher level courses.

I wish I wanted to do AKC, since that's what we train...but I can't stomach the idea of 12 hour days for 2-3 runs (and I know Lucy would be mentally fried). I like my 6-8 hour days with 6 runs

I run AAC (very much like USDAA), not much up here for CPE and given the choice would do AAC over it. I don't do CKC, for the simple reason I wont s/n to get a card and my dogs are not KC reg'd.
Hope do do USDAA in the future
