I love doing it, my dog loves doing it, and I like being with the people in my club (I'd go out even if my dog was sick or injured, it's not *just* about me and my dog).
I don't breed so I don't have to worry about "breed worthiness" or feeling obligated to do something. If something makes me or my dog uncomfortable we would not be doing it, period. I guess we are lucky in that each week I see progress and the dog's desire to be there and to work. I don't think it should be all that difficult or complicated when the dog is "there" mentally and physically.
We also do rally obedience, dock diving, lure coursing, conformation, and agility.
