    I could be classed as a moderate psychopath but i pinky-promise not to waste all my money on prank calling you if you PM me your number.

    *way to make a good impression*

    I don't mind where we meet, guess it also depends on suitable meet-sites. If everyones' dogs have good recall then we don't need to go somewhere fenced but if not then a fenced dog park would be the way to go.

    Muttboy, maybe start a list of your own with the names of interested parties, send us (plural) all a PM and we can exchange numbers. Leave the planning to this thread so that other people can get involved as this progresses.

    If we meet in my area (Toowong) i could recommend Anzac dog park as it has seats, agility equipment, small dog area and lots of shady trees. However public toilets are a fair stroll away in the main park area. If no fences are required then Rainbow Forest Park off Dobell st in Indooroopilly is gorgeous with forested areas, plenty of open fields, a creek and everyone that attends there is lovely with well behaved dogs.

    Other ideas?

    either venue sounds good, my preference is for the the one with the agility equipment, drinking water for dogs? i guess i can not avoid brissy traffic no matter what venue :-(

    mine will be mainly on leash, like to have a play on the agility off leash of course but will rely on others to maybe kep their dog close while i let mine off. i will say that one of mine will not tolerate being petted by anyone altho he is ok around dogs. if he come up to you first then he is fine.

    moderate psychos are fine so will pm you my number, prank calls are fine as long as they are not reverse charges.

    others all good with Anzac park at toowong, i will be at south side (wacol) private training early this sunday, but may not have time to socialise much.

    Beware the tunnel and tall fast dogs...

    A malinois was recently killed when the strap holding the tunnel exit pulled that end much lower than the rest of the tunnel and the dog hit it going flat out and there was no give. I had no idea they were so dangerous. Another way for a dog to injure itself in a tunnel is to hook a leg into the tunnel strap handles...

    And then there are the dogs that pee in the tunnel (as they're safe from swooping birds there).

    i have a lightweight tunnel from airdogs, a bit smaller diameter than trial specs, i never strap it down. i have a large dog, bigger than any standard mal that flies thru it. if they hit the walls as my dogs play fight in it all the time the whole thing just moves with the dog.

    my jumps are all light weight PVC pipe i made myself.

    lol, my dogs ambush birds. they should be doing aircraft landing zone bird clearing for a living, they might actually be useful for something that way.

    muttboy just clarifying, your dogs are good with other dogs, yes? i'm just wondering about the implications of inviting a group of strange dogs off leash into an area with only one or two other dogs on leash, and expecting every-pooch to be comfortable with the situation. leash-anxiety and all that.
