    Default Hello! =] ....

    Hi All,

    Have been poking around the forum for a few days now and thought I'd introduce myself! I live in country WA and adore dogs!

    I have a Whippet X and he is my little man! Love him to pieces... we currently do agility training (he's getting an agility set for xmas) and have done obedience trialling which I am hoping to get back into competition form after xmas.

    I've tried to attach a picture of us but I don't know if it has worked or not, LOL

    welcome Gemmie

    That is a very sturdy whippet x. yes your picture worked.

    Frosty and I like doing agility too but we don't have any official agility equipment. We do have a lot of training DVDs by Susan Garrett and Greg Derrett.

    I use old boxes and broom poles for jumps and I tried using bamboo rose stakes for weave poles but she busted them. I borrowed some more sturdy weave poles but I had to return them last week. Ah well. She's not too bad but I think I will need to do something about getting gear to practice. And we use a phone book in a towel or the back steps for practicing contact work - or at least getting her to practice being stopped with her butt in the air relative to her front feet.

    sounds great Hyacinth! I'm waiting for the warmer weather to stay put so I can set up our back yard with plenty of equipment! Thanks for your ideas too by the way! I like to look at kikopup videos on youtube she has some great pointers too!

    Hey Gem,
    Can't wait for the agility equipment to be set up so Gypsy can practise too!
    For the rest of the forum, Gemma and I are good friends IRL and go for playdates together all the time.
    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.
