Well the lady I'm getting my Golden puppy from , she does therapy and does ervices w/ her dogs, like seeing eye dogs and helping the eldery. But she said that goldens are good in agility, and thats what I've always wanted to do is agility!!!! I will train him and do anything. We will exercise everyday and all. It just looks like so much fun!!

I should clairfy - the question is are they GOOD in agility vs CAN they do agility?

The answer to are they "GOOD" some are great There's one near me named Rosie whose photo is in the august issue of Cleanrun. I've lost track on the MACHS on that dog.

Other Goldens have trouble getting over the jumps - although that has a lot to do with conditioning aside from structure. Working lines seem to do better. The extra bulk of a Golden tends to be the problem. But as Show Pug put it, there's a place in agility for all dogs. I've seen Bulldogs and Bassets doing it too!

There's a Golden in my agility group and she does great in most of it. We're the beginners, so none of us are working for speed yet, just familiarizing ourselves with the different obstacles. Rosie does fine for most of it, she's just not so sure about the balancing board. It's nothing you'd ever find in a competition but works towards confidence building and teaching the dog to think about it's balance, feet, and get it used to an unstable moving surface.
