    CoolA soggy Michigan Hello

    Hi, I'm Carol. I have four labradors, all black, and one I have only one more leg to go to get our Rally Excellent title. I'm curious as to what else I can do with her. I realize agility, but she's too big really too big, I can do some obedience we've been in the Novice ring but she broke the stand for exam and NQ'd. How would you get started on tracking or something else? She's four years old so we have oodles of time yet. Is there anyone else from Michigan on here? My special girl is a PAL registered Missy Dash but we just call her Dash.

    Welcome! What do you mean to big? Like to fat? They put them in size categories! You can do dock dogs with her.

    Congrats on your Rally success! I wouldn't give up after one NQ in Novice (heck, my Caleb NQed twice in Rally Advanced, and we're still plugging away). I'd try a couple of things- first I'd enter some matches or show n goes so you can practice under ring conditioms. The ones that aren't AKC sanctioned are more affordable. Also, the AKC now offers an optional title called Beginners Novice. It's a stepping stone between Rally and Obedience (uses signs instead of the judge to tell you what to do). There's a sit for exam instead of a stand, and the stay is a sit/stay while you walk around the ring. As for tracking, do a Google search for tracking clubs. The AKC site should have AKC clubs listed, too. Good luck with whatever you decide to do! Oh, and we love pictures.

    Hi, yes I suppose she's overweight. She weighed 88 lbs when we took her to the vet last time. It's cyclical though, coming out of winter she's a bit heavier, but she's also tall, long legged and I don't have to lean over to pet her at all. She loves to run, fetch a ball, and swim, she just is a big hearted girl who thinks she's a lap dog. I'll post pictures as soon as my IT department can help me get it on line.
