We just started beginner agility class. We just had our second class last Monday. The first class, Chloe did great on her jumps, but froze on the A-frame. The second class she did great on her jumps, table, and she made the A-frame. I was so proud of her. I think this sport may become addictive.

thank you for the link. They look a lot like the leads we use for our horses. Same hardware and everything. They are really strong.

How much does it cost near you? Would love to do it with my grandsons for the spoos but don't know if they have it here or what it costs.

Pamela prices range hugely around here and not necessarly for quality.
First though the dog has to have basic obedience lessons before they let you in though they may let you do a private class half hour assessment to see if your dog is obedient enough.
The lady I go to is 155 a session of 8 classes but most are 250 and up
She is awsome and has been doing it for 30 years it is the newer ones that charge more.
Some places are 360 for 8 classes UM NOT.
Do you guys have 4h around you? I know they offer some dog stuff now and what is this thing I keep hearing of dog scouts that sounds cool

I think you and your sister will love agility. We are having a great time and Chloe loves it.
We bought the lead from a place called thinklikeadog.com It a training place close to me. The lead is called the Martingale lead, all in one. They come in many colors.

We paid 135.00 for 6 weeks. I think it was worth it. If your grandsons like doing things with the poos they will probably enjoy this.

Thanks every one for taking a look. I will keep you posted on how Chloe is doing.
