Exclamation Austin, TX working sports

Anyone know of any good working dog sports groups in Austin, TX for us to get involved in?

I've reached out to a couple groups for lure coursing - but they said their group was 'for sighthounds exclusively'... I'm looking for any recommendations for agility, therapy, lure coursing.. pretty much anything to keep my boy active locally except schutzhund . I know this is a very 'dog friendly' town and there are plenty of opportunities to practice obedience in various locations - but I'm struggling to find a good group nearby to keep him active..

They can probably steer you towards training venues. Also, while lure coursing clubs are for sighthounds, they frequently offer CATs, which are for all breeds.
