I have never done any doggy sport before, and to be honest, I'm not built for it.
Can you tell that from my agility 'equipment'?
This is my hoop (which is basically two street cones, a hoop and some baling twine).
This is my low jump (which is basically a fence post, a concrete block and a little bucket full of fence staples).
And finally, the best jump of all (which is basically two water containers, a fence post and some more baling twine)!
I believe I can fly!
All that proves is my imagination, really, and that Sheila thinks she's a bird. Not much hope there, then.
Where do you even start with agility anyway? I'm thinking of joining a local club maybe (once I've found one, that is). They have the see-saws and the A-frames and stuff? Right? Things that you can't build with baling twine and fence posts. And then there's what happens at clubs. Do you practise inside or out?
One thing that I do know is that each dog must be over a year old to enter, because of their joints. And they must be well socialised, bause of all of the other dogs there too.
Sheila falls there, because her and other dogs don't get on well.
Ah well. Sounded like too much work, anyway.
So that leaves me with one dog. One dog who never jumps. Ever. Ben.
Seriously, he never jumps - I have to lift him onto the quad sometimes because he doesn't fell like jumping. He just puts his paws up on it, and stands there, as if he was going to climb a mountian.
Of course, Ben is still too young to learn anything yet, so we'll start in 2011 by joining a local club. If there is one.
I think you're mad.
Wish me luck finding a club!
