Agility – for me or the dog?

November 23, 2009

So, I’ve signed Miki and I up for agility classes. We start January 5 with the Calgary Canine Centre. I’m pretty psyched for this – so much so that I keep thinking the classes start next week. Miki and I have attended a couple of the Calgary Agility Meetups and she’s been really good with the equipment so I think she’ll enjoy learning how to run a course, and it’ll be good for further refining her behaviour, especially her attention span (I hope).

While it may not be immediately obvious, agility will also help teach me – and heaven knows how much I love to learn. While the initial set of classes will be mostly for Miki’s benefit, if I continue to enroll her in agility lessons, more and more it will be on me to properly handle her while on the course. I can’t begin to predict the future, but I’m half hoping Miki and I really enjoy agility enough to participate in trials and competitions. Only time will tell. In the meantime, we’ll look forward to starting our classes in the new year.
