Default Savannah GA Agility

I'm looking for a mixed-breed allowed agility group in the Savannah area. I
would be interested in fun runs, etc. more than serious competition as
neither Charity nor I is particularly seriously competitive. Anyone know of
anything? We are actually looking for someone who knows what they're doing
and can help me train Charity, as I'm a newby at this sport as well!

Thanks!

Agility was slow in coming to this part of the world... so there are
fewer clubs offering USDAA or NADAC competition for mixed breed dogs...
but there are some, and your local AKC club is the place to make
connections! Talk to members who train and compete about who has
equipment and permits others to use it for fun. Start accumulating your
own equipment and building it, if you have space.... For liability
reasons, you will almost certainly have to have some training classes
behind you before you will be permitted access to Anybody's equipment.
You may have to join the club... and may have to assist with their
events ("work credit") to have open access....

You can find contacts for local AKC clubs at that web site:

Thank you so much! We have a local trainer, but she doesn't do agility.
She may know some folks, though. I'll go through the AKC site too and see
what I can find out. Isn't EVERYTHING slow in coming to this part of the
world?

I don't know if Aiken is close to Savannah but you can check this out:

Also I ran across a premium for an AKC agility trial being held
by Savannah dog training club.

If you end up competing with a mixed breed there are lots of NADAC
and USDAA trials in the greater Atlanta area.

Wow, thanks for all the suggestions. I'll look into them. I wrote to the
secretary for Savannah Training Club and she suggested the name of someone
whom she believes works with agility, so I have to call her too. I'll let
you know what I find out!

Mary, she's over 3 1/2 hours from Aiken... Fine for AKC trials, but not
for training or probably for matches. (I'm the Training Director for
the Aiken DTC.... live just across the state line in GA).

Actually, given that Savannah is on I-95, North Florida is an
option..... And there is one good, but Very intense and serious,
agility trainer about 50-60 miles from Savannah, in Statesboro, GA.
