I have a mutt (Rose) that would probably be around the activity level of a Coonhound. She needs at least 30min of running (not walking, but running-like-crazy-chasing-rabbits-non-stop running) in the evening and then she needs about 30min-1hr of walking/jogging, plus a little bit of digging in our feild in the morning. She couldn't get by with just a 30min walk.
It would also probably be best to adopt an older dog (2-4years) because they are normally not as hyper. (Depending on what breed you get.)

I've really thought about setting up a course out here, Breeze. She'd do very well as far as being able to negotiate the course. When you figure these dogs were bred to herd wild cattle - wild cattle with horns - and hunt jaguar and wild boar, you know how quick and agile they have to be. Shiva's fast and quick, but by 9 months old Kharma was able to outrun her and out maneuver her. It might give her something to do that would keep her from wanting to herd the poor cowsies all the time, lol!

Neither one of them can keep up with Bimmer though!

The trick will be to convince her to do it . . .

Victor walked the course at adoptafest..did everything slowly but more than agreeably..except the teeter toter..tht would not be something i would expect to walk him thru.would want to teach that one in a few lessons so we went around it.if we had a place to practice..i bet he would be tough to keep up with. We were playing with the flashlight last night and he jumped his hind legs as high as my shoulders..boiiiiiiing!

we all offer classes for all breeds but if you wanted a dog for the purpose of agility or fly ball realistically your looking for either a border collie Pyrenean sheepdog or sheltie

I like borders and smooth faced Pyreneans but shelties are just plane ugly

Any breed can do agility but the best breeds are

Standard height - Border collie
Mini/Midi - shelties or Pyrenean sheepdog

Agility is all about speed.
