    If only the internet worked in the auditorium of my son’s school. Kidding, maybe not kidding. Ear buds are a great invention. LOL
    On a serious note, agility trials have a lot of dead time. This is an excellent time to listen/watch podcasts & training videos.

    • Esteban Fernandezlopez says:

      I agree! Phones and ipads are very helpful with dead time, but instead of scrolling, use some of that time for agility!

  • Ariel says:

    One thing I missed during Covid was the dead time in my car traveling for work or trials and listening to your podcast! I struggle to really engage with podcasts when I listen anywhere else!

  • Carol R says:

    I listen to the BAD podcasts and CogDog podcasts while mowing the yard. A good 1 1/2 hour use of time!

  • Connie dee says:

    Can I down load pod casts on my tablet to
    listen in the car?

    • Esteban Fernandezlopez says:

      Yes, you can! Also to your phone as well. For iPhones, there is a podcast app, but Sarah created a Bad Dog Agility Podcast app, I think you can go to the app store and get it there for free, just search for “bad dog agility”. Once you have it, download it whenever you have access to wi-fi so you don’t have to pay for cellular data charges on the road.

    • Sarah Fernandezlopez says:

      Here is a link to the app for the podcast:

      This is for the public podcast that we release here:

      If you’re asking about the VIP materials, those do not have a download option. They are largely video (rather than audio).

  • Kerstin M says:

    I’d like to have some kind of mobile app to plan my training, as it would be easy for me, for example in a coffee break at work, to plan the afternoons agility training, but I need someplace to put down my thoughts, plans and so on. Do anyone know of such an app for android?

    • Sarah Fernandezlopez says:

      I don’t have any specific recommendations. I tend to just use the “notes” app to create an outline or document. Maybe others will have ideas. You might also ask in the FB group.

  • Zinnes says:

    Good idea but things like podcasts or videos of agility runs require a bit of fore-planning.

  • says:

    Love this reminder. A great way to spend dead time in a doctor’s waiting room to keep from getting upset over something you can’t control.
