Loved agility class

SO I took Champ to his first agility class and it was wonderful. We had so much fun. I was so very proud of him for doing such a great job. He thought it was more of a social class but he'll get there. He's also doing better at the nipping and I have been working on basic commands, well really just sit. One day at a time.

That's Great CHAMP 😃 woo hoo!! Where did you take the class?? I'm in the general area & I want to start C3PO on agility too!

I went to Huntington in Long Island but I'm sure there's one close to you. I went in one of the threads that contained a list of agility classes that you can pick close to home.

Sounds like you had a great time. I have been working with my basenjis in agility for just over a year and they love it. It is great to work with them as a team.

I'm so glad you brought this up. I've been wanting to get Duke into this kind of training or lure coursing. He would be excellent (I think) b/c he luvs-luvs running and jumping.

OK…Took Duke to an agility class! For me - too much commitment at this particular time - training Daisy in her Puppy Obedince class at PetSmart is priority. We went soon after the previous posting. I knew I would have to commit 100 percent to succeed with Duke. I know for sure that Duke is a shoe-in for this sport. Daisy is not - too much beagle. But I am going to pursue it with Duke b/c he will be happy doing it. 🙂 Mom's just know! 🙂

I set up some obstacles in my back yard ,just basic stuff,a piece of 2x8 between 2 sawhorses with ramps on both sides ,some plastic boxes to jump over,and some metal sign posts for slalom.Maggie likes them so much that if I'm not home she stands on the sawhorse bridge to look around or lays down on it. p.s I'm new in here so I am not sure what I am doing

I was thiking of getting my pup into agility since she loves to run like the wind, maybe lure coursing too. How old would be the perfect age?
