      We survived the dust, then the mud. Like the diehard agility folks we are we rejoiced in the weeds, only to curse the spirolettes and burrs we nightly pulled from our dogs' paws. When the storms of the winter of 2016 rendered us almost inoperable we took some bold action--and investment. Hundreds of feet of storm drain and many inches of drainage rock lies under the astroturf and wood chips you see today.

       Last year's rains left the adjacent paddocks looking like swimming pools, but Astro's was high and dry. It came down to: If you look out your front door and the sidewalk is dry, so are we.

       This week the lights are coming so that we can hold classes all year long--as long as it is not a torrential downpour. Team Astro recently did a Midnight Run in Elk Grove, and it was delightful to run on a cool night under the lights. Dogs have great night vision so they have no trouble running the course.

       We have grown and now offer more advanced agility training. Please check out our new courses and jump on for the Fall/Winter season, with a half-dozen trials to partake in. Also, join our new Demo Team, that will be making many appearances in 2019!
