    What is the reasoning behind having agility and hunting on the same day? Many of the performance dogs compete in both activities.

    I was checking the dates for the 2013 national on infodog and nothing is listed for confirmation and Sullivan Mo. not Gray Summit is listed as the location of the show. Are plans for the confirmation still be developed for Purina Farms Gray Summit?
