He doesn't do dog competitions. His stance on them is the same as mine regarding his cycling and auto work and such: I support you and am interested and love to hear about what's going on but would rather pursue my own interests than bum around yours all day while they are happening

It works very very well.
This is basically my situation! Garret does car shows on weekends& I do dog things. I'm sure when Penny FIRST starts competing, he'll come once or twice just because it's new but it will wear off quickly
It's wonderful to be a human in a Vizsla world!

I read this like the boyfriend had leash reactivity but its getting better.

Don't know how he feels about dog sports though I think if we had a disc dog he'd love that. If I has the time for herding, I'm sure he'd come support.

For Sawyer and Marley, he still doesn't "get" my obsession with dog food and why I keep making him by better food for Marley, but he's wonderful about walking them and taking them to the park.

Mine is involved in IPO with me, but doesn't participate with his own dog. Penny the Pit is technically his dog, but she has bad hips and can't handle too much stress on her little legs. He will take pictures/video for me when I'm working Aiden. He will come to training unless he has work. He comes to every trial to cheer me on and help me keep my head on striaight. He goes tracking with me at the crack of dawn and sometimes brings Penny too. And he snuggles with Aiden at night. He's a great guy.

He has plans to rescue his next dog (Pit x) as a pup and has hopes to compete in IPO with it if it all works out.

He's pretty involved when it comes to supporting me & cheering us on. He'll come to every event unless it interferes with work. The disc crowd draws a lot of fun people and mostly all bring spouses/significant others, so it's never boring on the sidelines.

He's also very into video production & photography (it's what he went to school for) so the added bonus of awesome photos is great!!

And one time... just once.. I convinced him to play a round of toss and catch with Dex. Forgot to tell him that means he should walk her before their turn.... he threw the disc, she caught it, and then she pooped on the field. Final score? 1.5 points :P Still proud of them for trying, at that point he had never actually played any disc with her so it was a good attempt.
