  • Adopted Murdock in December 2006 when he was 10 Mos old. He has been the best boy ever! We just learned he has Lymphoma & are devasted. I can't imagine life without him & am hoping he responds well to treatment and lives many more months!!

  • I lost my best friend, Evie, a year ago September. I adopted her in 2006, she was 2 years old. That sweet girl was the love of my life and I miss her dearly. Thank you MAESSR for bringing that beautiful dog into my life.

    A Howell Dog Book of Distinction 


    From Library Journal

    "Simply put, Agility is the most fun you can share with your dog," the author asserts, and those who have jumped on the bandwagon for this fast-growing sport will enthusiastically agree. Racing against the clock, dogs must, among many challenging obstacles, clear a series of hurdles, dash through tunnels and up and down see-saws, and weave in and out of a line of closely spaced poles. Simmons-Moake provides a solid introduction to the sport, while husband Gordon's detailed appendix on obstacle construction is extremely useful to those just starting out. Public libraries, especially those serving communities with active dog obedience clubs, should consider. Areas with established agility clubs will prefer Julie Daniels's Enjoying Dog Agility (Doral, 1991), which offers excellent step-by-step training instructions (including puppy training and agility for children) as well as creative ideas for obstacles; it refers readers to the U.S. Dog Agility Association for information on obstacle construction.
