Last night I had a really interesting phone call from another member of the obedience club we go to. This guy described a very active club in Indianapolis that has chapters all across the US. After spending several hours looking through their website, I'm pretty excited about it too! There's nothing wrong with my current club other than group events being scarce. There are maybe 10 of us that regularly use the club and equipment.
Check it out and let me know what you think!

I probably will! The "badges" thing is cool....step by step until they really have an activity down to a science.
The drive is longer, but if it's as good as it sounds, it would be worth it!

Its really cool that you guys have stuff like that around you, I haven't really taken a close look but around these parts there really isn't many dog activities (maybe in San Diega there might). Do you know about how many people attend this club?

The guy that told me about it says he's been going for 3 weeks and there have never been less than 20 people there. He's driving 4 hours round trip...it will only be about 75 minutes each way for me. The clubs are so much nicer than just going to an obedience class now and then. As a member, you get use of space and equipment (except during events) and there are other people with varying degrees of experience in any given activity. There is also access to several trainers when you have a specific problem you need help with.
For instance, when I wanted to start Lib in agility, there was no one in my city that I knew of pursuing that activity. At the club, not only did I hook up with 6 other people training their dogs in agility, but someone noticed Lib's drive and suggested I let her try lure coursing, which I had no idea how to begin on my own. The very next weekend we were out in a field in the middle of nowhere watching a group of greyhounds running like mad. Lib was so attentive, I knew she wanted in on it. Grin
We have a local dog park, but I swear my dogs are bored there after about 10 minutes of meeting and greeting other dogs.
They want to DO something. Lib likes competition, and I know without any doubt that she comprehends it. I'm hoping my new pup will enjoy at least some of the activities at this new place.

Thats great! And with a minimum of at least 20 people this sounds like a neat program not to mention that its only been going on for 3 weeks! Its great that you've gotten in touch with other people that will be able to help you out with agility and maybe lure coursing. Sounds like loads of fun and I'm sure the 75 min drive will be all worth it!
