My friend has a German shorthaired pointer that absolutely loves to run. When he's at home he's always on the move around the 20 or so acres so my friend would like to get him into lure coursing or agility. He loves to chase things so she thinks that he would be good at lure coursing, but as far as I know there's really nowhere around here that does it and they're usually breed specific. Also after she gets him a little more trained in agility where would she find competitions? Thanks for your help!
Does she have somewhere to train in agility already or is she looking? An instructor will be best to direct her to appropriate competitions but AKC, UKC, USDAA and NADAC all have agility in the state of Florida. (As does ASCA but I can't recall if sporting dogs are eligible)
Florida is a large state. More specific locations at least by county might help.
