Turf Blues

I've been trying to figure out a time to bring Panic back up here again. I miss him and he really does seem to love it here. My spring break is mid-March, and I don't think I'll be going home, so I'd like to try to get him up here.



After doing UKI in Portland, I was feeling the drive for agility again. I was searching for UKI trials and there is one 20 minutes from Wooster! How cool!

Then I looked up the facility, and it's on carpet-like mat turf. Sad. I won't run Panic on that. In general, I'm moving away from wanting to do agility on any type of turf with him. The rubber-infill stuff is nice, but he still has some amount of trouble. As he gets older and we practice so infrequently I don't feel like I can ask him to run on a surface that he isn't 100% comfortable with. That limits our potential trials even further. I understand that the trend is moving towards more turf, and that's ok. Turf has a ton of advantages, but it just happens to not be so good for Panic. Give me some dirt any day.
