I would imagine that we, like many agility newbies, live in housing developments that have the dreaded homeowners association covenents that govern what you can and cannot do in your yards, to the exterior of your home, and have sitting in your yard.
Before me, Mum was on the board of our development association - but she got wise and quit pretty quickly. Thankless job.
We've not had any association board members comment about that cute blue and yellow teeter sitting 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days a year in our yard, and hope that we won't ever.
Mum is pretty good about cleaning up our equipment and not leaving it out for hugely extended periods of time, although she'd like to. She has garage storage solutions to organize everything which helps keeps it all tidy and easily accessible. We feel pretty fortunate to not get any grief about our equipment in the yard, although to us it doesn't seem much different than all the kids two story playhouses around the development.
We've been wondering what all of you do that live in developments do about your agility equipment? Getting any heat? Or is the association pretty good about allowing your 'toys' in the yard.
