That's a great picture!

Will we be seeing you tomorrow at the Hare n Hounds Show? Freddie is very excited about it, probably due to the smell of the sardine cake I have just made for him in preparation.

Our agility club doesn't start them until they are a year old, but some pups come along for a couple of months before that to get used to the excitement, and there are a couple of things they are allowed to do, but I can't remember what!

Some clubs do puppy classes though your dog shouldn't jump any height or do much weaving until they're fully grown. My training class do a puppy class which is great for getting them to start learning basic commands. They do the baby dog walk and A-frame, and do jumps but with the poles on the floor.

Try looking on www.agilitynet.co.uk to look for a class in your area.

Get the obedience sorted first, a great help. and teach them to turn left and right around a cone. A good wait command is essential.

Finding a club with vacancies I found to be a nightmare so start looking asap,
