Default Poodle Activities

Jasper has settled into my house and adjusted to my lifestyle wonderfully. I would love to find an activity that we can do together. He is very interested in chasing squirrels, rabbits, and sometimes cats so I was thinking about herding or lure coursing, but I am open to any activity. I just want to get him out to meet new people and dogs and for us to have some goals to work towards.

I am located in Guelph, Ontario right now for school, but will be returning to the Kingston area in May.

If anyone has any suggestions for activities in these areas I would love to hear them.

Thanks,
Erin and Jasper!

I loved doing obedience and agilityb with my boy. The bond we had was awesome. We did try ralley, but we both found it boring after agility. Flyball would be another fun thing to try.

Lily and I do obedience, rally and agility. I like all of them because they are about team work and being in synch with each other. Lily loves all of them. She likes being with me, but also being at trials and flirting with new people.

If I were you I'd try a few different ones to see which ones you like and which ones Jasper seems to take to more. The nice thing about all those activities is too, that it will make your dog more confident and well-socialized, as well as being fun and good exercise.

I think flyball is probably out of the question. He isn't toy driven at all and I can't get him to chase/play with a ball to save his life
