    I've always wanted to teach my border collie agility. I asked my Dad if he could help me build some equipment but after we finished one jump I realized it would be too expensive to continue on. I love to watch her fly over that jump though.

    Gorgeous pictures, looks like your dogs are loving it.

    You don't NEED real agility equipment. I eventually am going to take classes, but for now I'm just getting my dog used to new and "scarey" things. Skate board ramps, kids tables (covered in blankets=tunnel) Commands like up, over, and under, ladders for a dog walk, ect. Here's one of my "jumps"

    I would love to teach my dog how to agility, but I think he would be too much of a spazz to learn. He's a rat terrier, which supposidly a very smart, but he has the attention span of a goldfish, he can't even concentrate on the same toy for more than a minute.

    Maybe when I get back into an actual house (and not this lame apartment) I will try to set up some stuff in the yard and see what he does.

    I think Rockie would do well on the jumping part and the sit table if I could keep his attention, he might even do okay on the sea-saw and the bridge thing, but how to you train a dog to go into those tunnels?

    Agility's tons of fun! I've already started a little bit with my aussie girl, Willow. She LOVES it, and learns incredibly fast!

    QHDragon - most dogs actually love the tunnel. Willow will go through ours even if she's not asked to! My golden however, is afraid of going in it but I think she's in the minority.

    ^Cody will be TERRIFIED of it, I'm not sure what I'll do to prepare him, but I'll figure out something

    I'm so excited, I signed up for agility with cody, starting in september. I'm really hping the class isn't filled, I think I waited too long, but I might still get it

    CPE is Canine Performane Events, it's a national club that hosts agility trials.

    USDAA is United States Dog Agility Association.

    AKC.. American Kennel Club.

    Hope that helps :)
