Fosters Desperately Needed.
Catering to Herding Breeds
As a group, herding dogs are the most often returned dogs to shelters and rescues, setting them up for possible death. Often the reason for the returns are nuisance or boredom behaviors: excess barking, digging, chewing or escaping. That is because herding dogs must have a job to do. They are not content with a nightly walk.
To help find these dogs forever homes Astro's, through its companion rescue Aarrf.org, a 501 (c)3 corporation, will donate 4 lessons to the new owner, plus three months of free facility use so the new owner and give their new pet the job it needs, and discover why these beautiful breeds are so special.
Can you believe these three beauties needed a foster in June? Thanks to Karen Parks German Dog Rescue they have all found forever homes and you may be seeing one or two of them on our course with our free Aarrf memberships to herding dog rescues to help keep them from ever returning.

Added In July: Little Dog Agility
Little dogs run as fast and are maybe more speedy than big dogs--just think how many more times those little paws have to fly to run a course under 40 seconds!
They also melt your heart. Their antics are side-splitting funny--but they don't want to be laughed at! They take their jobs seriously. Join us with a new little dog, or just come for the fun on Fridays at 6 pm.
These little tikes can be lost in a group class so we have formed a class just for agility dogs 16 pounds and under. We all have a blast, off leash with no worries of big dogs.
