We've been learning some foundation agility at class and Vincent can be 'sent away' and come back over 2 'jumps' (he's not allowed to jump because he's only 9 months! He'll be allowed to do it once he's over 12 months :) )

Here's a link to the class facebook page:

He got a little distracted once he got to his send away spot, there was a bouncy spaniel nearby!

Anyone in Manchester area thinking of going to a class Jane at WaggaWuffins is amazing :)

I'm very proud of him and hoping this is the start of something amazing, I would love to do agility with him once he's old enough :D Cockapoos are the best!

it's to do with bone development, apparently they can damage their bones so most centres don't allow dog under 12 months to jump! Vincent jumps ALL the time! I guess it's liability, you don't want someone coming along and blaming a dog centre that their dog has damaged bones or something.

Well done that sounds great, I think Dudley would love agility, I have a kids play tunnel that he zooms through (although he does stop to eat it from the inside sometimes!!) I do worry about the not jumping though as we have some small walls in the garden that he is always scrabbling onto and jumping off and I worry he could damage his bones.

I think it's about reducing it where you can, as long as he's not jumping over everything he should be fine :)
