Yeah Mira had her first trial at 2 (well 23 months) and didn't really start working on real equipment til she was 17 months other than a few "hey interacting with this is fun" type things...BUT that depends how you count "doing agility" as we were laying a lot of performance ground work (general and agility) from day one. Also, Mira is cheating.

By contrast, Kim didn't start training agility at all til she was 18 months, and then was retrained to fix all the terrible things she "learned" in the group class we were in at the time, and hit her first trial when she was about 3 years old, trailed some, took over a year off, just now playing again at least for the time being...haha. She's having fun though, and doing well. My rapidly-greying red dog <3
