My trip to Arizona last week was amazing. I got to see most of the top agility dogs in the world competing. There were teams from Hong Kong, Japan, Spain, the UK and many others competing. The grounds were huge.
The kenneling area was a bit away from the rings. It was huge. It reminded me a little of the coverage they show of the military overseas and all the tents they live in.
flyball, freestyle, and dock diving. It was all dogs, all the time for an entire week! Our kennel was right near the dock diving. It was crazy. The dogs really love it!
The scenery was beautiful. Every time I had to walk back to the kennel area from the rings to get a dog or another bottle of water (I must have gone through about 150 oz per day minimum!) this is what I got to see.
All in all it was a great week. Exhausting as we were up at 5am every morning to get to the show grounds, and we put in many 14 hour days, but it was amazing to see people that I have only read about and have trained using their methods. Inspirational indeed. My hope is to qualify Tucker for next year and be there with a dog!
(anyone else find it interesting with all the pictures I took, not one has a dog except for the dock diving one??)
