    Yes, you can bring your Murphy, I might even bring my Murffi! ;D
    There are lots of fun gundog scurries to do or to just watch. :)

    Thats great! I will definitely just be watching as Murphy would be far too excited with everything going on to do anything that resembles gun doggery or even being a half trained dog! Lol x

    I had a tiny ambition to enter Charlie in a scurry at a game fair by May this year (probably just pet dogs or something). That will have to wait a bit now...but still hope to do by the end of the summer.

    He'll be a disgrace, ::) ;D , but that's nothing new for us - and we'll have a good time!

    Half of the entertainment at scurries comes from watching the antics of some of the dogs! For me anyway. ;D :p

    Some of the scurries are very straight forward and any dog that likes to retrieve can do those. But there are others with multiple pick ups which require a dog to be fast and handle really well. :)

    I think that everyone should have a go. The crowd loves it when things go wrong ;D (as I know from flyball competitions.....).

    I love scurries but just a word of warning to anyone with a young dog trying to establish calmness and steadyness around retrieving, those things tend to go out of the window in a scurry. :eek: :D
