4 Paws Kingdom was a lot of fun. Everything there is set up for the safety and comfort of the dogs. The owners have 2 Corgis, so we got the royal treatment. My husband and I don't own an RV, so we drove there in our car and rented the RV. They also have cabins, but they are smaller than the RVs. The 8 dog parks include one with a pond, one with agility, another with rally, small dog park, etc.
Asheville is a little over an hour away. Very dog friendly, but you can't take them into the Biltmore Mansion. Luckily, my husband and I had been there about 5 years ago, so we didn't go there this time. 4 Paws also will walk your dog (for a fee) if you are going to be gone all day, so you could check out the Biltmore. Well worth it.
That would be a LONG drive for you, however. Texas to NC... about 16 hours!
We drove 10 1/2 hours. We did it in 2 days and planned stops at dog parks along the way. We planned the whole vacation around the dogs!
Hi,Kara. My co-worker was at your meet last weekend. She is a member of the group that hosted it. She told me there were some cute corgis there! Bre really wants to get Taffy in agility. When will you practice next? Bre will be in SanAntonio this next week with the Girl Scouts but will be home next weekend. We really need a meet up. Didn't go to the Boneyard because Bre couldn't go. She said it wasn't fair because she is a Corgi Mom and couldn't attend! LOL Hope to see all of you soon! Ann
Hey Kara! We've planned a last minute anniversary getaway to Galveston May 4-6th, so I won't be able to come to the trial. :( However, we are bringing the dogs, so I'm sure they'll get a kick out of the beach.
What kind of contact have you trained Daisy with? I'm doing 2-on-2-off with Tucker, but he hits the bottom of the contact obstacles so fast, it's a challenge. He ends up skidding off.
Hi,Kara. Our girls are doing great. It's so funny watching them play. Taffy is still so tiny, she's only 4 lbs. But she rolls around with Izzy like they are the same size! We're so happy we got her. We do need to get together. Hope it's soon! Have a Happy Easter!
Hey Kara! That's great that Daisy is doing so well! Tucker is definitely not ready to compete yet, but he's really been a star in his class. It definitely comes naturally to him. He is super FAST! The course that we go to is outside, so class is dependent on the weather. They've had to cancel a few lately. He is working off leash now, which was a scary thing for me. We're doing about 3-4 obstacles at a time now, including things with contacts that he has to wait for me to release him. The weave poles are difficult for him; we're not quite there yet.
Last class our trainer moved the location of a tunnel into a shadow and a lot of the dogs were hesitant to go through it. So she had us line up and just do the tunnel. Tucker could care less about the tunnel, so it was no big deal. He comes out the other side, gives me a naughty smile, and ran right back into it. He was running all around, back and forth through the tunnel. SO EMBARRASSING. Wouldn't come for anything, and everyone was waiting on us. Finally he just came, stood in front of me, and let me put his leash on. Such a corgi!
I'm not sure if we'll be ready to compete by May, but it'd be fun to go and watch!
