If you are doing agility (or planning to) with a rescue dog, you might want to check out the Yahoo list that has been putting on these great contests--their information follows.

THE BAGGAGE AGILITY RESCUE LIST
This group is for sharing brags, insights, training methods, experiences, worries, hopes and fears with others who have RESCUE agility dogs. The group is called 'BAGGAGE,' not in a pejorative sense, but positively.....as in baggage to carry away all his/her Q's, titles and awards!

The members of this list have the wonderfulqualities of character to re-home, love and train dogs that other humans have not wanted. These qualities carry over to their treatment of other listmembers, of course!

'For perhaps, if the truth were known, we're all a little blind, a little deaf, a little handicapped, a little lonely, a little less than perfect. And if we can learn to appreciate and utilize the dog's full potentials, we will, together, make it in this life on earth.' --Charlotte Schwartz, 'Friend to Friend: Dogs That Help Mankind'

The list has been in existence since April 2003, and is up to 506 members at last count. To subscribe, send a blank email to:BaggageAgility-subscribe@yahoogroups.com
