      Haha, the problem w/ that is I may have to move so I have some good technical water to train on. I sure don't have the $$$ for pro training at $700+ / mo.

      I'm all for getting help from a pro when you need to. But I didn't understand how much can be done between just you and your dog. I bought a winger with the electronics. Told hubby it would pay for itself in just 6 weeks since I am doing more training on my own.

      But that whole water thing... that's a real limitation.

      I bet Labradorks has all kinds of water where she lives. We'll just all go camp out in her front yard for a few weeks and visit the watery places around there.

      I feel guilty because I don't train as much as I'd like to since it's a whole 45 minutes to really good technical water.

      My issue is time. Loading up your stuff, driving, setting up your stuff, organizing with training partners, packing up and loading your stuff (even more fun in the rain!)...

      Yeah, unless it's your own property, it's going to eat the better part of a day. Don't plan on accomplishing anything else. Probably a lot more time consuming than obedience.

      Yes, it really is. If I want to practice obedience, I can rent a facility for $20/hour. It's 60 minutes round trip, but the equipment is there, set up is like 10 minutes, and unless you're training with other people and chatting in between sets, an hour is way too long. Plus, it's indoors and there are lights (and heat and AC). Same goes for agility. I need my own weaves, but those can be set up in my yard.
