Super portable jump, converts into winged or wingless!

I know this thing doesn’t look like much, but I am perversely proud of it. I had some extra pipe hanging about and was having trouble getting out to my usual practice spot, which meant my only option was to go back to hauling my gear to a nearby park.

The Best Agility Trial Gear (aka How to Pack for a Trial Like a Champ)

There’s a lot of choices when it comes to picking your trial gear, and what you need (and what would just be really nice to have) will likely change over time as you trial more, settle into your competition habits, add new dogs, etc. Even after trialling for a few years I still find myself tweaking stuff, replacing stuff, and… Read more →

Since purchasing one was definitely outside my budget and getting regular access to someone else’s was proving a surprisingly difficult endeavour, I began to research making one. I had… Read more →

I audited a Jenny Damm seminar. TLDR: it was AMAZING.

A lot of people are talking about Jenny Damm right now after the World Championship. If you’re wondering what all the hubbub is about I’d suggest taking some time to listen to Bad Dog Agility’s podcast giving a great rundown on the event. The main thing people are talking about is how much Jenny Damm’s running dogwalk made a difference… Read more →

It’s Agility Blogger Action Day! This time we’re talking about “Ways to Improve Agility Organizations”

It’s that time again for Agility Blogger Action Day, where all us dog agility bloggers get together to have opinions about the same thing, like talkative synchronized swimmers (but with dogs), for your enjoyment. Full disclosure: I have been competing for less than a year. Before that I liked agility, but certainly wasn’t versed in it beyond “Dog goes over jumps and ramps and… Read more →
