Comments: I have worked with slow and fast shelties and dealt with totally different issues on courses.  I also have experience with rescue dogs (two of our shelties are rescues).

Agility is a great way to develop a relationship with your dog and a great way to build your dog’s confidence.  It is about the most fun you can have with your K-9 partner (although playing with a tennis ball is a close second).
