Not many of us get to get out and wp or do a legal sport with our dogs. I was thinking if anyone has any ideas of things we can have our dogs compete against one another and we can post the video for evidence. We can have an entry each month and a obviously a winner each month too lol

I was thinking of a 50 yard dash or something. I saw something similar at the staffy nationals last year, it think it w ould be fun. We can have different weight classes.

Don't mind me I am bored out of my mind but this would be cool. I know Bullies weren't bred to run like greyhounds but I think our dogs are pretty athletic and it could be healthy competition:)

I always thought a "tug of war" with a mud pit in the middle would be cool :)

Hang time is another area you could compete with by video

hang time that could be a LOOOOONG video for me, lol. unless its not what it sounds like. I imagined him hanging onto something? I know Mel has done it for so long I get bored with him hanging lol. I would have to edit in order to post since youtube has limits and you would think I am cheating :)

Awesome idea David! Sounds like it could be a lot of fun! I know a little bragging rights for the month's winners would bet a great "prize" haha ;)

I think my boy Whitman could be a good 40-50yd dash candidate, he's got some wheels for a 9 month old pup! Lol I think weight classes and maybe age groups is a good suggestions too. I'd love to see how he would do on hang time but I just started him on springpole work last week haha.

OK so I completely forgot about this threadlol

So far I have the following competitions:

Timed 50 yard dash (we can change the distance if necessary) - we can use a puppy class and then weight classes the same as WP

Best trick- one video submission per dog per month

Hangtime- The limit on youtube for a video is 10 minutes lol so I guess we can find out what members dogs can do.


Jumping- Set up an object or bar lik they do in agility and see whose dog's can jump the highest


Any other suggestions? this can be a lot of fun guys come on lol

just take all the things from pit bull competitions and add a couple more like you did.. High jump, wall/tree jump, 100yd dash ;) tug o war, hang time, long jump if ppl have docks or whatever.. this can get really creative and a whole lot of fun for all of us, Hoagie says lets do it!

Kane doesn't like to just hang on the spring pole as much as he likes someone playing tug with him and then swinging him around in a circle, lol.

How would we verify the 50 yards??

Dogs that snore the loudest???

its easy to go to a school football field after school or early before or on weekends when the football field is not being used ;) thats what I'd do; I have a circle around my house that is 480m and its marked for running every 80m. So I can't wait to see how fast hoagie runs an open football field.. LOL

Find a local high school field and sneak in lol or you can use paces like the old times.

The tug of war would work but it would limit the competition because you need to compete against other members so unless you can meet up with another member there is not other way to do it.

Dock diving sounds great too.
