I'd love to show my Rottie in agility since he's past the age for a SAR dog, but I hate that they have to go through those stupid poles. That can't be too good for the joints of a big dog. Also every agility trainer I've ever met wants to do clicker training, which I think is dumb! My dog sure can jump though....My shepherd mix is tearing it up in SAR; he should have both his wilderness and disaster certs within a few months. What a hero! It's annoying to have to get a disaster cert but that's what the team requires. Avalanche work is fun too but for the time being I'm stuck in a place with hardly any hills, let alone avalanches!
I like watching the dog show, but I have to change the channel when the toy group comes out. Those rat dogs just bug me, especially when they have so much hair you can't see their feet, and horrible bug eyes and smashed noses. Yuck.
