I just wanted to thank you for this awesome opportunity to join your online classroom! As a totally green handler I’m more of an email list lurker, so I really appreciate the risk free chance to peek behind the scenes and see if this could be something for us some day.
Oh and fwiw, here’s my answer to your question. I do agility because it gives me a runner’s high. Call me crazy, but as frustrating as it can be, when we click, I truly feel psychologically and physically elated. Apparently the endorphin released in a state of euphoria is an opioid and anandamide belongs to the cannabinoids. So there you go, agility is a drug 😉 Greetings from France!
1) The training as it brings out the scientist in me, I get to try different things and see if they work, if not I try something else.
2) I love competitive sports so I gives me an outlet for that.
3) I love pushing myself and learning something new.
4) I love animals and especially dogs so of course I like doing an activity that includes them and an activity that that they enjoy as well.
