So, what is this?
“Team Unruly” is a ragtag
band of heroes group of friends who met through dog-lover communities on LiveJournal. The name was originally coined because a few of the members enjoyed mucking about in the local photography community, but the group grew to include many others. Our common bond is that we all love our dogs and love to train with them; if you can teach a dog to do it, someone in our group probably has. We do weight-pull, agility, rally and formal obedience, flyball, search-and-rescue, therapy and assistance work, herding, nosework, dock-jumping, treibball – the list goes on!
The purpose of this site is to share with you our trials and tribulations. Some of us train for the sheer joy of working with our dogs. Some of us travel long distances to compete against other teams. Some of us just really like learning about training methods, dog sports and dog history and are happy to sit on the couch with our four-legged (or three-legged, in some cases) best friends. What brings us all together is the desire for others to see that there’s a huge world of possibilities out there for dogs and the people who love them. Training your dog doesn’t end at “come, sit, stay.” That’s barely the beginning!
Please bear with us as we learn the WordPress ropes, get everything set up and start posting. Between the lot of us, there should be plenty of cute dogs, wonderful photos, exciting activities and different perspectives to keep you coming back for more!
