Thank you so much Ember for adding ideas on how a disabled handler can also compete in Flyball. That is VERY useful!! And thanks for being open about your own invisible disability and how you overcome it to be able to compete in the sport you and your dog love. I think that's just flat awesome.

Charlie, thanks also for sharing the information about the man in the wheelchair completing in agility. We see these people at local shows, and they are just stunning. The relationships they've developed with their dogs and what the CAN do is just so inspiring.

Thanks guys. smile

A new study using dogs and the MRI machine has shown dogs have emotions similar to our own. As dog owners, we've always known this, but the scientific community always needs proof before accepting anecdotal evidence.

Although we've always known dogs have emotions, the ability to use the MRI machine in this unique way may forever change dog training as we known it. What do you think?

Alva, the MACH is the highest title an agility dog can earn in the American Kennel Club. It would be equivalent to the highest title earned in your country's kennel club. It's a cool, fun little trophy. smile

Do you know about the history of the MACH bar trophy for dogs earning their agility championships in the AKC? This article covers that history and re-examines the sentimentality of the MACH bar straight off of the MACH agility course. Which type of MACH bar would you prefer if you and your dog earned (or have earned) your MACH/PACH?

You are right Maggie. There are many hidden disabilities out there. That is one reason it's very important not to judge someone's handling when watching agility.

I once was doing a long lead out with my dog Aslan. I don't see well. It's very much a hidden disability. When I lead out a few obstacles, I cannot tell if Aslan, who is the same color as the dirt surfaces we trial on around here, has moved or if he is still in a stay position. I can tell if he hasn't taken the first obstacle, but that is is.

Because of that, his (and all of my dogs) start line stay criteria is just not to take the first obstacle. At this trial, I set him down at the start line and told him "stay." As I was leading out, he left his sit and crept up to in front of the first obstacle. I heard someone in the audience say very sarcastically, "Oh yeah. 'Stay!'"

It made me so mad I almost stopped, turned to the bleachers and gave whoever said that a lecture. My dog was doing EXACTLY what he was trained to do...not take the first obstacle.

I've learned to really try and never judge someone's training or handling. There are almost always reasons for what they do.

One of the topics in agility most close to my heart is the physically limited or disabled and agility. If you have not done agility because you think it's impossible with your set of physical limitations, I hope this article inspires you.

I've known some awesomely talented teams with a handler with such daunting physical limitations that I can't imagine how they even get dressed each day, much less run agility successfully. Here's my article on the topic. I'd love to hear which agility (obedience, flyball or any canine sport) handlers with physical issues inspire you!!
