Sandra's Millie joins the Burmington gang in agility training


Sandra's Millie has just begun agility training with me at home. She has had about three lessons and is very enthusiastic. Millie has not started on the weave poles but certainly now has a basic understanding of the equipment and what is required. This little girl has the enthusiasm to be a very good agility prospect and could compete next summer.

I have been collecting and making the equipment over the years and now just about have all the equipment. I want Jon to make a few more jumps next year.

millie looks realy keen,how old do dogs have to be before starting agility? how old until they stop,just interested

Donna they can't start until about a year old thier bones need to set, and then it all depends on the fitness and enthusiasm of the dog. Fudge will be competing next month and all next year and she is 10 and will run 2-3 courses a day, Chelsea still competes at 12 but just one run a day, Diesel who is six is really fast and Parker, well that's another story he is super fast, and will take his own course and gets elliminated! I am very proud of Fudge as she just needs one more clear round to be promoted into the senior agility level with UK agility. If I keep training Millie she will be ready to run in the nursery agility class at the Easter show.

I'm sure she'll be more than ready,I know you said that she was keen so I expect that's a great start.
