So I have begun thinking about starting down the road of titling some of the furkids in whatever interest them... Other than 4-H as a kid, I have not actively competed in anything in a long time - though I have done agility and rally for fun. Now I want to look at doing some more serious competitive pursuits - but where to start? The main AKC office is in Durham, NC which is close and so I have access to a wide range of options. I am hoping to attend some upcoming events over the next few months and I have watched so many Youtube videos, my head is swimming. Part of this is to give the dogs a structured outlet for their drives and skills...and part of it is - I miss having pretty pretty ribbons...LOL Does anyone here compete - or have you titled your dog? What did you like? What was there not to like? What are the important things to know about getting started in the ring? Advice? Suggestions?
