Default So we started agility.

As the title says, my wife and I started agility with our younger dogs. Today was our first official lesson. My wife has wanted to do agility for a long time, so I decided I would do it with her. Well, I must say, agility is going to be a lot of work. Especially for something we just want to "play" in and do for "fun". I can already see that's not going to be the case as my wife had me making practice jumps this afternoon hahaha. Either way I think this is going to be a lot of fun for us. The dogs seem to really enjoy it and it's low stress for them compared to other things we do. I can also see how this will help with our protection sports as well. Here are a few pictures of today. We were just learning jumps, working "off" side, and things of that nature today.

It's a heck of a lot more exercise for the human then some would think. Eventually you stop making mistakes so you don't have to do it over and over and over again

I knew it was physically demanding. The footwork and timing are what's impressive. I have good timing, but my body cues for this need some help. Also because of all my other training, it's going to cause some problems for agility. That's okay, we will get through them. Today I think I was boring my dog while she was waiting for me to get with the program haha.
