Default First agility attempt

I got a call from the trainer we have worked with for a couple of months, and she said she was setting up an agility course at a local park. I decided to take Dami, the dog we've had for 3 months since she needed to burn off some energy, and I thought agility would be good for her, and more interesting than going for a run. We got to the park, and she took to the course in no time. The trainer doesn't have a full setup, just a few items, but Dami took to them in no time. Showed her the jump once with the bar on the ground, and then raised the bar to the lowest setting. Dami immediately started to jump it. I could get her to sit and stay, walk to the other side of the jump, and over she'd go. She did start to go around it after about an hour and she was just exhausted. The other items, the tunnel and the weave bars were even easier to train her on. I was stunned at how easy it was to get her going on these.
