I'm I too late?

My dog Mara is 6 months old does this make her to late to learn agility? I want to do a sport and this would be fun since she likes jumping. I know this would be a huge commitment so i am researching. Any tips?

I don´t do agility with my dog but have tried various of things. I would be very surprised if it would be too late to start doing agility at the young age of 6 months. I am sure even my and my 14 month old gsd could go and start doing agility if we wanted to, or any other sport. Go find some agility courses or agility club and start practicing, your dog is still very young :)

6 years maybe, 6 months is plenty young.

A lot of people DON'T start agility until later, to let the bones and hips develop. You can start her now if you want though, just try to work on the obedience side of it and getting her accustomed to equipment, don't make her do anything she's not ready for.

There are a lot of things that wait for full involvement until the growth plates are closed around 18 months. So yes, you can start her with agility and they will do things appropriate for a puppy.

Lots of comments from you on people looking and not answering. It is typical that people check a thread and don't bother to answer if it is no interesting to them or of they have nothing to say. Don't take it personal.

I do not think that you are late. Dog agility helps in stimulating the dog physically and mentally. I think the earlier one starts the better. Most people start way later so i think you are on the safe side. Here is an article on the benefits of agility.
