    Anyone going to the ASSA national in Virginia Beach in April? I'm thinking about going with my girls.

    The only downside for me is that I can't fly with 2 shelties - so I will have to do a 14 hour drive each way :-( Unless I can find an airline that will allow me to take both dogs if I buy 2 tickets - but even then I think my girls are too tall (at 12-13 inches at the shoulder) to fly under the seat.

    would love to go but with the Ohio trip, we'll be sitting out VA this year.....
    14 hrs is pushing my day drive limit. I usually only do a 12 hour travel day when going north- that's about what the Ohio trip will be... only Cran will be going on that drive, will leave everyone else with my friend.....

    I’m planning on going to the USDAA regional in PA that weekend before then just heading down to the National, but just for the agility day. I can’t find anyone obsessed with shelties enough around here that wants to stay even an extra day!

    14 hours with 2 dogs is sounding - not fun. But I'm sure it will be worth it :) If we were going to the Rally Nationals we definitely wouldn't do this, but since we just missed qualifying - Sheltie Nationals it is!!!!!

    there you go- I'd love to go back to the Sheltie National- we had a great time when it was in FL (2012). we were just starting to compete so we didn't do well in agility but Cran and Dix got their RN titles there:winkgrin:

    It's in Florida sometimes? Oh wow - maybe we will wait for that. Probably not. But maybe. Sounds like you all had a great time!!!!!!
