    Hi,

    I'm looking for somehing to do, rather than just walks with my dogs. I have two shih tzu's who are full of energy and i would love to get involved in something with them.

    Could anyone suggest anything please.

    I am based in South Wales

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Agility, obedience or ringcraft maybe? Ringcraft always totally knackers Henry out and he loves being the centre of attention at shows. I know agility needs some basic obedience training - maybe have a Google for local Good Citizens Scheme classes to get working on your Bronze awards?

    There's a Shih Tzu at our flyball club, she has a whale of a time!

    Thanks for the suggestions. Neither of their obedience is that good. Totally my fault. Mabe I should start with a basic obedience class and go from there

    Sounds like a plan. I actually enjoy obedience a lot more than I expected - I thought it would be painfully dull but our classes were fun, and obviously having a dog with reliable basic commands is great. Dog loved it too. We now do agility and I think it's a lot easier for having a good basic grounding in obedience.
