I started competing in rally last year. My boy, Nicky, earned his RN in April. My girls are still not quite ready. We are working on attention when we are out in new places. They know all the commands but when we get out to a trial they become very distracted.
I have started Agility training with my girls this Spring. Both of them really love it. They each are very different in their attitudes and training challenges. Rally, my 5 year old, has no fear and does everything with plenty of speed but sometimes gets so excited she forgets she is part of team and starts to do her own thing. Rio, 19 months old, is more cautious. She is great on her contacts but needs to work on her speed. My mom has just started Rio's brother in Agility two weeks ago and says he is just like Rally, very eager to do everything, sometimes twice.
