Ooh I love looking at pictures of your dogs doing agility. We have decided once Bruce gets older, we are going to try agility and flyball, and maybe tracking. See what he likes best, and really go with it. There is a club here that offers puppy agility classes too, where it isn't anything really physical on the pups, but more making sure they are obedient and teaching you the foundation. We are going to try to get him into one of those classes around 6-8 months.

Those really are some great pictures! You can see how much fun everyone - humans and dogs alike, are having. Looks like they're doing really well and are totally engaged with you and Kiersten. Anything you do with your dog that facilitates the bond is a good thing. I love seeing serious working dogs doing fun stuff like agility.

Thanks It's been so much fun! Kiersten and I are usually just talking crap to each other the hole time. It's what we do. The dogs have fun because they love running and jumping on things. It's very low stress for them. Especially compared to the other venues we play in. The dogs are collar and punishment free when we are there. It's all about fun and play. I love our trainer! She helps us figure out ways to make agility work without interfering with our other venues. It has made a huge impact on our bond and team work that has carried over into everything we do with them. I like the fact they take guidance from us, but are working somewhat independent. It has helped a bunch with directing them for searches, bites and other obstacles.

Great pictures!!!We dont do formal agility but have agility equipment in our yard to do for fun and exercise with direction. The dogs love it. I had max run through those tunnels as a young pup. My daughter has a chihuaha and he has so much fun they im going to sign them up for agility classes. It is a fun work out for all!!!

Agility is a great idea. Will definitely keep him stimulated both physically and mentally.
