How it began and how you can help

The idea of finding out about agility trial locations before one goes was developed by Beverly Mapes, who started competing in 2013. While Bev travels throughout the U.S. to blog and document trial locations, overnight places, restaurants, and more, the real value of this site will be realized when you comment on your experiences at these places.

Comments can be made in the following places:

  • At the bottom of a blog post
  • On the “Nearby” tab for a location

When you are planning to stay at a hotel or eat at a restaurant near your next agility trial, wouldn’t it be nice of other agility folks that stayed or ate there had comments for you to read and decide if you want to go there?
