I'm coming to my new home tomorrow. Just a wee thing and much too young now....havent even finished my shots. We'll do puppy school and obedience. But already thinking I might want to do agility. What age do you usually start?

    Typically you can start basic training with puppy sized equipment and ground poles/ very low polls right away. It is recommended not to do full height and rigorous competition til 2 years old at the earliest :)

    Thanks Addie. I know we are too early but think this would be lots of fun.

    I would look into foundation excersises for agility. I dont do Agility myself, but in Flyball there are ALOT of ground work excersises that dont involve equipment that is fun and safe on their growing bodies that you can start as soon as your pup comes home.
