    DefaultAgility in Lansing, MI??

    Hi guys,

    Well Abbey is a little over a year now and I am considering starting her with agility. She's a fast little stinker, so I think she could be good at it!

    Abbey is a Lab mix, so I don't have "papers" on her at all, but does that matter in normal agility competitions?

    Also, for those of you in MI, do you know if there are any training places in/near Lansing that offer agility courses??

    Thanks!!

    Justine

    You can get a PAL number with AKC to compete in agility, obedience, and tracking. And any other organization you can compete with a mixed breed dog.

    I would go with the club that conrad posted. I found another trainer in the area but they seem kind of questionable/odd (their definition of "advanced agility" class is dogs that are sequencing, it says their dog is an "agility champion" but it doesn't say in which venue and the titles the dog does have are sort of inconsistent with having any championship title, etc - they could just have a poorly done web site, but I'd look elsewhere).

    Hmm. Going to have to check that club out, especially since it's at MSU in the Vet school that I will eventually be attending..! And it's about 5 minutes from my apartment!

    Thanks!!

    Awesome! I drive over an hour one-way to agility class, so I'm jealous ...

    I've been a member of CCCC for six years now...great club We hold AKC, UKC and CPE events and classes for the public. I teach the puppy agility class. Our next UKC trial is Aug 23-24 in Willimston, come by and say hey!

    As someone else said, if your dog looks purebred, you can get an ILP number and compete in AKC. Mix breeds are allowed as they are in UKC and CPE.
