So, long story short... I've been strongly considering getting Cedar back into agility, but I'm sort of conflicted about it.
We took agility classes from when she was about 4 months (pre-agility)- 13 months old with Mary Hunter. Cedar absolutely LOVES it... in every picture of her, she has the biggest grin on her face.
Feeling nostalgic, I bought some equipment about a month or so ago, and have been doing a lot of drills from Clean Run and whatnot just for fun... it's been interesting picking up where we left off last year. Cedar has matured a lot mentally during her "hiatus"; I think that she is finally stabilizing enough that we could be able to actually do stuff competitively. I would love to be able to trial her in agility next year, I think we could have a lot of fun.
Also, I think that agility is something that she could totally succeed at, unlike herding which is pretty much a constant struggle (not that it isn't fun, of course; it's my passion!). My only worry is that I/we will be doing too much... with school, obedience, and herding, there's not that much time left over for agility. BUT... the classes (7 weeks) are during December and January; most of which I have off for Christmas break.
Thoughts? Should I sign us up for the class?
A few photos from practice today, in my front yard no less :-)...
State of a Zoëbird - I know you're all thinking BUT WHATS ZOEBIRD DOING PRECIOUS? ahhhh <3 so cute! At least, you are if you're as obsessed with her as I am. Which you shouldn't...
