    Well done Pippin.
    Agility is so much fun. My Harley is fast but he always ends up waiting for me as I got arthritis in my knees.

    Your dog should be 12 month old or over. At my club they let you start a bit earlier but you can only do the little jumps and the tunnel, Not allowed to do the A Frame.

    When they're young it's best to concentrate on the basic obedience so that when you start agility after 12 months old your dog is under control.
    The wait until at least 12 months of age is to allow their joints/ bones/ muscles to develop. If you start too early you can cause damage that will affect them in later life.

    We have started charlie already a 10 months but he only does the touch point equipment and he runs through the jumps with out the poles on to get him used to doing rounds etc.
    He loves it but is a bit unruley at the momment and it definatly comes easier when the dog responds well to voice/hand commands.
