We had a male GSD in agility class and it did affect him in that venue/sport. He was a little over a year and he belonged to one of the trainers at the GSD club. This dogs temperament was wonderful, my favorite GSD at the club. He was more awkward and I remember the agility teacher telling her he would get used to it and it didn't matter because he loved agility and thought he was great at it, they did not take that away from him.That dog had a few obedience titles under his belt by the time he was a year, his amazing obedience and focus grabbed my attention. It did not affect his ability for obedience. Sadly he had to put down at a year and a half because his kidneys failed. I will never forget him and I was in shock when it happened. I will never forget that dog. Issues with his feet or not, he was by far the most obedient and hardest working young GSD I have met to date.
