Re: Two Classes Too Much?
Oh, absolutely go for it. If you can manage it, your dog should love it.
I had a "game plan" for Lancer's training/class schedule when I brought him home. I thought we would focus on the obedience until I felt he was close to being ready to start trials and then branch into other areas. It was out the door less than two months as "opportunities" opened up. His organized schedule now-and this has been since Nov:
Obedience - Monday/Tuesday evenings(sometimes alternate Tues with Kayla.
Thursday - the "fun" stuff:
Agility foundation (this was one of those opportunities that came up) started when he was about four months
Rally - One opportuniy leads to another-Kayla was already doing this, it's after agility on the same night so why not?
If you can, see if you can get a list of what and how they intend on training and whether they are separating puppies and switching equipment between mature dogs and puppies still going through their growth periods which for Dakota would be up till he's 18 months. Dakota will be 8-9 months (?) when this class starts, so they should be focusing on puppy level work and familiarization (no heavy contact/stress work) channel weave work vs the straight weave set-ups and of course people footwork and handling skills.
