Yes and no.

My dogs handle very, very differently. To the point that I am amazed anyone manages to successfully run more than one dog in agility. Meg is mostly retired from practicing, and just runs a few classes a trial now. And I can't run her to save myself. I particularly pull her off obstacles (her point of commitment is about when her back feet land on the far side of the jump) by cuing at "Gusto timing".

However - they do have a similar set of strengths and weaknesses based off my own strengths and weaknesses in training. Both of my dogs have great rear crosses and phenomenal flips. Both have awful pick ups from front crosses. But that's me and my handling, not really the dogs themselves. Both also are huge contact suckers and not tunnel suckers - because I tend to over-reward contacts and under-reward tunnels.
