I just did a google search, and found

www.dogfriendly.com

It lists places and events in north america that are dog friendly. Last year, Toronto was number 7 on the top 10 cities in North America that are dog friendly.

According to their website, some places like Black Creek Pioneer village are dog friendly. I didn't know that!

It's great to know what places are dog freindly, I rarely go anywhere without mine, Unfortunatly I don't think there will be many dog freindly spots left here in Ontario thanks to our Liberal government. Nice to see Toronto made #7, that would have been a good boost for tourism in T.O, next year I'm sure they will be off th list, no more agillity trials, no more wight pulling, no flyball, it's really sad to see all these super dog lover's gone, all the super dog's gone, and all the positive press and the money they bring. I'll be sure to thank my MPP tomorow when I see him.

I'm sorry, did I miss something? Why no more agility? Why no more superdogs? I was going to get Odin into agility, and the training school I go to, the trainers are in super dogs. In fact the rescue I got odin from, the owner has 3 bulldogs all in superdogs.

After Odin finishes Obedience level one, we are going to try agility as well. I'm confused. Where are you doing your agility? With a school, club, on your own??

Sorry people, I ment groups like the NAFA, The North American Flyball Association, IWPA, the International Weight Pulling Association, and national and international agillity compititions, some will not be able to come to Ontario to compete becuse of the pit bull ban, a lot of these organisations have staffies and pits as members, as well as dogs that may be similer in apperance to a pit type dogs, sorry for the confusion.

I'm finished basic classes, I'm taking advanced classes, then waiting till my babygirl is a year to do flybal and agility.

muzzelvelocity in TO is where I'm headed to do classes. It also gives me plenty of time to work on off leash handling. I've watched some classes so far to see what goes on and seen people kicked out of classes for having dogs that really needed more obedience school before doing "more fun things".

Since for flyball, you pretty much have to play with The North American Flyball Association, I don't see them just ignoring ontario from now on.
