I was wondering the same too since my pup is a WGSL/WL cross(which I think Aiden is too?) and I was concerned if he would be too big. Of course he is only 4 months old so we have a ways to go before we can try but I was going to build him a little course in my backyard just for fun.

Keep us posted with this!
He is a cross. He's about 85lbs at his heaviest and I believe around 25". He is pretty long too(IMO).

He really can jump incredibly well, though. He's not rocket fast, but he's not the slowest dog in the world at all. I'm excited to see what happens

You never know, but that shouldn't stop you from trying something that you both might love! I had never competed in anything before starting flyball with Halo, and did not take classes with racing in mind, but she took to it so well and loved it so much that we ended up being invited to join the club that we took classes with, and a week later she raced in her first tournament.

So something that I tried "just for fun" ended up being even more fun than I ever imagined, and now I'm totally hooked. Halo is not the idea size or structure for her sport either, but so what? There are always going to be faster dogs, but she's a solid, reliable member of the club, who can run full time in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th position on a team (she hasn't started yet, but we have plenty of starter dogs), and get the job done.

Go for it!!!!

I know I already "liked" just about every one of these pictures on Facebook...but I just have to say it again: I LOVE these!

You really do get some great shots of Aiden. Makes me think I should play around with my camera more often, instead of relying on my iPhone all of the time.

Lol thanks! Sometimes I feel like a weirdo because I share these here even though I'm friends with so many people on Facebook who have seen them already Oh well.

And your iPhone pictures always come out perfect! I can't ever get mine to look that good.
