    Could be your SI, a normally low-motion joint, so when you knock it out of alignment it really, really gets angry with you.

    Consider going to the doc and saying up front you don't want...

    This is not about the handler's ego. She gets excited about her good dog, has seen others tug as reward, and just gets carried away.

    Thanks, Bicoastal, for some specific references. Will try to...

    Is swinging a tugger harmful?

    A person in my agility class has a very game young border collie, who--big surprise--loves to tug, and it is used as a reward. The owner gets pretty excited about how good this dog is, and when she...

    Well, I'm clearly clueless, what with thinking that Canada is part of North America and all, so I have another question--what happens when someone throws a big ritzy party, and a gal's heels are a...

    Are you in a position to have a pet? Adopt a shelter dog and find a group that trains for agility. Lots of the same skills as riding jumper courses, but much cheaper. You won't be ready to compete...

    I have a Dover mid-weight blanket that was about 5 years old when I bought a second one for a new, second horse. I was afraid that the newer blanket would be of poorer quality, as is the case with so...

    I used to do small horse shows and some lower level eventing, still have two horses at home who tie me down a bit. I fell into agility when I got a new puppy, decided to do a basic manners class....

    Totally riding on Budweiser's coat tails. Good strategy, I suppose, in a cutthroat business, and seems to have worked for them in spades. But still a really, really tacky commercial.

    I had an issue with a Purina feed a few years ago, and my local feed store put me in touch with a manager at the mill. That person said that that particular mill handled no cattle feed, that cattle...

    I traded my 1997 F250 last year on a 2012 F150 with the 5.0L engine, 3.73 rear axle. It tows my Hawk 2h BP/DR trailer every bit as well as the F250 did. In fact, I consider it to be the best towing...

    Didn't read this all in detail, but here's an idea: I have one who I've had to re-develop from really poor, out of work status. He tends to be an ectomorph by nature (lean, as opposed to fat, not...
