Around the dog agility blog-o-sphere!

You know how much I am a big fan of Silvia Trkman. Well, she's been making the rounds at some cities across the US providing seminars the past few weeks. And dang, we had to miss her one in Cincinnati this year!

But the nice part is that a few of those that attended her seminars recently have been blogging about their experience. Be sure and check out these blog posts out: You don't want to miss this! Horse Agility. Very cool...

A little late, but the final results of the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge Finals held October 2nd and 3rd at Purina Farms, have been posted.

We reported last time that the USDAA would be moving Cynosport in 2010 from Arizona to either Philadelphia or Kentucky. . (secretly we hope somewhere near some myrtle beach resorts, so we could maybe work in a vacation, but that's just us :)

Yesterday the USDAA office reported some possible dates for Cynosport. Location and final dates to be determined. From USDAA:

"As of now, the possible dates for next year's event, depending on location are

  • September 22-26
  • October 13-17
  • November 10-14

Please note that more than two sites are under consideration and not all dates are available at any one location. Date will depend largely on location."

This just in...Clean Run currently has free worldwide shipping on all Clean Run produced books and DVDs. Now's a great chance to stock up for the holidays for you and your friends!
