    I want to get Cody started in Fly ball.. msg

    Well, a lady in our agility club has a deaf aussie and is trying to do agility with him. I never heard how it went as the only thing I heard before I left is that she was going to put him in obedience first. Does Cody already know basic obedience and hand signals to go with it? If so, I think you could train him to do both agility and flyball. I don't really think flyball should be that hard to train him, as the dog pretty much does it by himself. Agility on the other hand, will be more challenging, as the dog usually knows which obstacle to go to in a word command. You would probably have to always be next to him or in front, so he could see you. I would also think that he would be trained to be looking for your signal. I'm not sure, but that's my best guess. I also bet there might be a book or two about agility with deaf dogs. Hope you can do it! Keep us updated!

    Weird Growth on Winnie

    Please if you have any idea about this post ASAP. I am really freaked out as our previous dog died of cancer. A few minutes ago, I found a weird growth on Winnie. At first I thought it was a tick, but it looks like part of her skin just turned into a bag or something? Could it be an absess? But why? It is on her chest by her left leg. It is pretty little, smaller than a pea. Does anyone have any idea? I'm really scared. :cry:

    Agility titles advice.

    This is going to be LONG :o Well, for starters we have 3 different big "clubs". There is USDAA (website: [url]http://www.usdaa.com/[/url] ), NADAC ( [url]http://www.nadac.com/[/url] ), and AKC ( [url]www.akc.org[/url] ). Within each of those are different titles. Here are the titles for USDAA: CHAMPIONSHIP PROGRAM The Championship Program is designed to measure a dog and handler's progress in the sport as measured against international performance standards, resulting in the award of the Agility Dog Champion title. Certification is tested on three levels through four standard agility classes and four nonstandard classes. Classes are offered at the Novice (or Starters), Advanced and Masters levels, with the Masters level the representative of international performance. A dog that has completed the Masters level will have demonstrated successful performance in competition on par with top level competitors from other countries throughout the world. The Champioship Program offers eight separate titles and awards upon fulfillment of the minimum requirements, as follows: Agility Dog

    Roxy's first BARF meal!!

    I don't know what RAW stands for, but I think BARF stands for Beef and Raw foods? :-?

    Who's got Irish Setters?

    marion~ I've been wondering... in the pics in your signature, did you switch your dog's ears?? :oops:

    WOO HOO!!! GO FREEBEE!!

    Wow, she is REALLY smart! I would be afraid to leave her home after that though. :-?

    Closed ear canals - where do they come from?

    Do they have more health problems than other breeds? :-?
  13. yellowlabsrule

    What's that?

    Sometimes Sable doesn't eat her food. Some of the things that I think cause it are: Heat Just not hungry Doesn't like the brand (if you have changed) Sick of that dog food, but after a few days it sort-of tastes new Is Asting a picky eater? I know Sable is a VERY picky eater though if there is something new on the food, she will eat it. (usually)

    Fair!

    Well our county fair was last Tuesday through today! Sable, Winnie and I competed and did pretty good! Yesterday, Winnie and I did showmanship, and we got reserve champion in our class (intermediate experienced) then they had the champion class (with at least 20 dogs) and we got reserve GRAND champion! :D (after that was the fun stuff :lol: ) Next, we did (with both dogs) costume (Winnie was a bee and Sable a ladybug), tricks (they put the dogs on the news doing their tricks :o ), and agility :thumbs: . I also took a dog facts test. Then today... we got the results from our test and I was the champion of my age group :o :o (I was also the only one who even did good enough to qualify for a champion :o :o :o ) And the prize was a dog bowl :thumbs: ( I love practical prizes) Then Winnie and I did novice obedience (which includes off leash) and Winnie had other ideas about what she wanted to do. (I don't blame her one bit!) So we didn't do to well in that. BUT... then Sable and I did the sub-novice and she did great! We were tied with another girl, so we had a run off and (drum roll please) WE WON! :D :D :D And it's Sable's first show EVER! (unless she did it with her other owner, but I seriously doubt it) And the prize for that was a very cute jewelry box (with dogs on it of course) So, we all had a lot of FUN which is the MOST IMPORTANT PART. 8) And we are all going to the state fair to compete (Lord willing) :o :D :D :D
