    Sounds like you and he are pretty well prepared, Beethoven!
    I think his experience that you WILL come home again will help a lot.

    He'll be fine - I totally agree with kasjordan about sending him with his own food and a toy or blanket (if that's allowed by your kennel) that's his.

    That said, you might prepare for a little...

    Do you know how big your actual paddock space will end up being after you subtract out the area taken up by house, barn, driveway, yard and those run out paddocks?
    If you're going to need to feed...

    For heartworm and flea control, you can use Sentinel - it uses milbemycin instead of the ivermectin for the heartworms. (Does cost a bit more, though.)
    In theory, you can also use Trifexis (same...

    You can make these with dish soap, too, if you have it on hand. (And you can double bag them to make them hold up a little longer, too.)

    The girls definitely got jackpots after their runs, ;)

    The crazy in the Agility rings didn't bother us much at all, but we've been trialling at Dream Park lately, so we're kind of used to that...

    Pretty well, all things considered!
    My agility girl and I went clean 2 of 4 runs, which made me very happy, what with it being our first time at Nationals and all. The best part was that I didn't...

    I don't love the idea of the welds, and I'd worry about what happens if the horses stop respecting it and rub on it, or crash into it - if the individual panels don't pop free, your whole paddock...

    What jetsmom said - you really want to keep him as quiet as possible, so unless you're around all the time and can monitor his activity level, I'd crate him. (Assuming, of course, that he settles...

    I have one of these types (3yo cattle dog/houndx) - and what I've learned about him is that it takes him a little while to get "dialed in" to a training session, but that once he's into it, he's a...

    Hopefully, for your guy, its just a muscle building issue - my friend's dog has a pretty extreme front end (he's a Cardi) and all the practice in the world couldn't make it any easier for him. They...

    You've gotten some great training ideas, scruffy, and hopefully, one of them will help, but I have to toss this out, just in case.
    Is your guy comfortable in his sit for that long? I only mention...
