    There is a dog training club about 5 mins drive from my house. "Deer Bush dog training"

    I used to go there years ago with my dad just to watch, they had all the agility set up going. As i said that was years ago so not sure what they do nowadays.

    I remember I seen mt first Irish wolfhound there! haha

    If they are still running it go down and check it out.
    A Wolfhound doing agility would be an interesting sight!

    I enjoy belonging to our Club's. We belong to a Kennel (Obedience/agility/Showing) and to two State breed Clubs. You get to meet like-minded people. be it doing Obedience, Showing, Agility or newfie people.
    We love going to newfie days and have travelled far afield to go to those, they are just fun. And it always amazes me how my dogs greet other newfies. They are like Family and very friendly towards one-another. Spent the day cleaning gutters at our Obedience Club house today....Sad really what I do during my time off

    My dog is 100% bitza... bitza farm dog - is my best guess.

    So we get to train and compete (if we want) in obedience, agility, herding, doggy dancing, flyball, tracking.

    There are some sport clubs that are restricted to certain breeds like the gun dog clubs but others are completely open.

    We have several breed specific clubs in SA that also run obedience and other sports training for their breed of dogs. Not sure if other breeds are allowed. It must be nice for GSD and Rotties to train with their own kind, without risk of being attacked by a freaked out SWF.

    Agility runs different times and courses for different sized dogs.

    Wouldn't be very fair having a SWF running a course with 1 meter jumps in a time of 45 seconds

    Jumps max out at 600mm ie 60cm in agility in Australia... I know a few fluffies who would happily jump onto a bed or couch at that height but they're usually jumping 20cm or 30cm depending on their shoulder height.

    I believe they like to jump them high in the UK...

    I joined for obedience... and when Milo's got that down, I'm hoping to do agility with him.

    I joined because it's a learning experience for both me and Milo. Also, he gets to meet dogs there. My friends don't put in much effort for dog play dates, and the dog park is fairly out of the way. So Milo gets to socialise and learn at the dog club which is what I like about it.

    I do obedience, agility, and tracking. I think going an obedience club is essential for dogs. Agility and tracking are something (I believe) Hausie enjoys. Chookie is a regular outdoor dining member amongst friends as he is well behaved around people.
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    Well called up the NSW British bulldog association today and organised to become a member. Feel good about them helping me out with some "issues" with Ruby too

    I would love to join a club of any sort with my guys.

    Unfortunately they are socially inept (kinda...well they appear that way LOL).
