Sports & Agility > AKC Eukanuba dog show tickets?

My idea of a- holiday is- playing agility!

They sold tickets on Ticketmaster and at the box office for the 2010 show (different price for Adult/youth/children/Sr). It is fun and probably a little exhausting. Lily competed in the agility invitational in 2010, so my experience is with California's layout. The Meet the Breed booths are an opportunity to learn from exhibitors and breeders alike about their dogs and get a glimpse of the dogs.

The distances between events (conformation, food booths, vendors, agility, parking) can be long. So, wear very comfortable shoes. Food and drinks were expensive. Parking was for a fee. And, I think they had a dock diving demo/event.

It's absolutely worth a visit to peruse the vendor booths, watch the daytime competitions and check out the evening conformation. In agility there are a lot of dogs in each jump height and I'd expect two rings. There was an announcer in one of the agility rings that would talk about the bio of the dog/team running.

My favorite part was watching all the different dog breeds running the same agility course. With only 5 of each breed invited you get a great mix and differing characters. They had bleachers in California and probably will have something similar to view agility in Florida. The breed conformation rings had chairs you could pull up around corded off rings and the group / best in show, etc., events in the main auditorium.

As long as I am able to make the trek cross-country, Lily will be there to compete in agility. Love to meet you. Send me a note if you decide to go.

I haven't heard of it, but that doesn't mean it couldn't exist. Jersey, if you are mixed breed or do not have verification of 3 generations of your pups lineage, then you'll want to register at this link
AKC Canine Partner Registration.
They make it easy and call it mixed breed so you don't have to know what breed(s) you are.

Gigi - thanks! Lily and I are going to the Invitational. We'll see you and Gigi and friends there too. HUGE congrats on 3 dogs getting invited. Well done applause. We are traveling and visiting family and have escaped the heat for a while.

Sports & Agility > Sports pups - are you on a raw food diet?

Yep, it's all truly raw food. Lily likes it all, turkey, chicken, beef and some fish (cooked sardines). Organ meat has always been a favorite. She has more energy and even her eyes seem clearer and more reflective to me. I'm very pleased with the raw diet. She loves it more and is thrilled when it's dinner time.

Koda on the other hand doesn't do any poultry. He'll eat beef and limited selections of the pre-mixed sticks (some had poultry mixed in). He is my finicky eater.

We like Orijen's product lines too for kibble.

Have fun with agility... know you'll get hooked too Jersey.

Sports & Agility > Argh! Going crazy...

Some ground work and lovely time spent just being a dog (for my pups)! We go on really long hikes, travel to fun places (with water/rivers, mountains), tricks training and look for fun runs if we can find them nearby. I actually get a little trial weary after many months of on-season trials. The dogs seem to enjoy the return to agility even more when there's a little break.

Sports & Agility > Ribbons

I have enough for a couple boxes of ribbons for Lily, but we get a lot fewer ribbons now that she's moved up in levels. Those quilts look very nice big grin.
Unfortunately, some are getting wrinkled. I'd like to take a picture of them with my pup or use them in some way for display. Again, those quilts look amazing. Mostly though, they are just for me to have something concrete for the accomplishment we earned as a team. The pups get a treat and I get a ribbon wink.

Raw Food Diet > Need help to ease my mind about blood test

I'd pick the mid-priced one as well, unless you are suspicious about thyroid issues. I'd also test sooner rather than later for peace of mind.

What made you want to do the blood test? Is blood testing a normal practice for dogs on raw food diet as a precaution? We're just starting raw.

Dogs & Travel > I need to travel with May, what do I do for stops?!?

When you say travel sick, do you mean off-balance, resting against things or throwing up? It takes time to get accustomed to driving in car and better if you can build up from 15 to 30 min to 1 hr drives and such before a longer trip. Sometimes they just stress and that will ease the more they travel. I have one dog who eats before and during travel and the other who cannot even drink. I don't given them anything, other than conditioning them for driving in the car. I also feed at least 30 minutes before a long drive.

I usually let my dogs out every 2-3 hrs to stretch and I get a break too.

I bring an extra set of car keys and I have a Honda CRV with a smart locking mechanism. I am able to lock all doors, if I remove the keys, open the drivers door, hold the latch in the open position while pushing down the automatic door lock. Then the doors are all locked. Then I start the car up and shut the door. I have to use my key directly on the front door to open it and the second key fob does not work if the car is running. Then, I have time to grab a sandwich, burger or go to the bathroom before hitting the road again.

Raw Food Diet > Veggies or no veggies

I might try fruit as a snack sometime and veggies less often then. Thanks for the help.

Brody, that is a great help to have the refuse amounts and details. I've been favoring turkey neck but it's 42% refuse and now I know we are "off-balance" and need to go boneless for a little bit. I can get turkey necks for a good price, though. Turkey backs are 2-3 times the cost. Actually much of the poultry has more than 10% bone, except breast sections look good.

Hounds - yes I was taking 2% of her current weight - thanks for thinking of that. So Lily should be eating less than 1/2 pound per day. Given the small portions, I need to figure out how to do this diet well and not waste food before it spoils.

Thank you for your help and getting us kick started on raw. I'll look for a very small can of sardines, since we won't use it very often and need very small portions. Lily likes her veggies, so we'll do that sometimes for variation.
Happy doggie on raw food.... Woofs! snoopy
