But i am going to ask them anyway!
I am thinking of doing some agility with Jade starting in the spring (we will be moving very close to a club that teaches basic agility classes) but I had some questions.
First, I don't plan on competing with her, this will mostly be for fun. But if she proves herself to be total natural can she still compete if she has been spayed?
I know that you cannot have their hips/elbows certified until they are two years old, but does that mean that we can't do agility until she is two? or do we just have to avoid jumps? She will be about 1 yr old when we start.
I have always wanted to do something fun with Jade, but I just started to think about agility a few weeks ago. Thought I would share the story that lead me to this decision
So Jade hates it when I go up into the attic, she will stand at the bottom of the ladder and just whine and whine until I come down, even if I never take me feet off the ladder. She is fine when I normally leave a room, or leave her side, but for some reason she does not like the attic! Anyway, I was putting empty Christmas decoration boxes away a few weeks ago. I wasn't even stepping of the ladder, just climbing up, tossing in the box, and climbing down. I was adjusting the last box and I could hear Jade whining below me. I told her to hush and continued on with what I was doing. I heard a strange noise and thought she was biting on the ladder, so I turned around to tell her to stop, and there she was half way up the ladder!
her back feet where two rungs off the ground!! I was speechless. I gently told her to get down and she just hopped off and I climbed down. I had no idea she was such a little monkey! So after that I did some research into different sports and thought that agility was something that she would probably enjoy. so here we are!
