At the agility trial this weekend the highlight was meeting Melissa Frye and the lowlight was Solo's and my one-obstacle run (the judge was standing right next to the second obstacle). That's about all I need to say about that, except that I have rarely seen any dog as obsessed with tennis balls at Melissa's Hunter, and that's including Border Collies.

Clean Run had a booth at the festival. I continued my tradition of buying Solo something new at every trial he's entered in this time it was a new tug toy (which is already damaged I don't recommend the Timberwolf rubber ball tugs) and five bully sticks. Clean Run has the best prices I've seen on really good quality sticks $1.60 for six inches. Can this quality be had anywhere else for a better price? My budget demands that I ask. Solo cannot have marrow bones, ever since his root canal, and these are great chews for him.

Be sure to post the results of your price search - bully sticks are one treat that doesn't cause Kavik scary, bloat-like symptoms.

Yes, please! This is the cheapest price I've seen...of course, Clean Run, to my knowlege, doesn't have booths out this far West at trials. However, if their online prices are as good...
Bully stix are one of the chewie few treats that actually will last Bodhi more than 15 minutes, and that Coda will have anything to do with since having a molar removed.

inches. Can this quality be had anywhere else for a better price? My budget demands that I ask.

I don't know about the quality, but try ebay. Seriously. I heard about it from the Dane board, and it looks like they can be had for less than a dollar each. For example, a 50 pack of 6" - bid price is $29.95, Buy it now price - $38.50. Even including shipping, it works out cheaper.

36"? Dear God.
These prices are pretty much the same as Clean Run and I guess it's the same product (sorted and graded the same way). I've never seen the nonselect sticks but these things vary so widely in, er, girth that I'd rather get the selects which are consistent in size. I've gotten burned a couple of times by ordering what seemed to be bargain bull pizzles and turned out to be a total waste of money.
This is a great site though. I like their assortment of treats. If I order I'll report back the results.

That's a great price.
Cheap bully sticks (from steers) can be gotten here: http://www.sitstay.com/store/edibles/chews2.shtml#ED1025

And this is a pretty good deal (real bully sticks): http://www.sitstay.com/store/edibles/chews3.shtml#ED1009

In both packages, you get pieces that are 2-6" long. I bought the steer bully sticks package, and it held a lot of pieces.
Macho Knots are expensive (bottom of page
http://www.sitstay.com/store/edibles/chews1.shtml ), but last longer than any other chew I've given the girls. For over two hours of peace and quiet, it was worth it. :}
For tug toys, I was impressed with the Fuzzy Tuggers at http://www.sitstay.com/store/toys/goof1.shtml#TYFT01 . They look and feel flimsy, but lasted my super-tuggers much longer than the rope types.
