Okay, here's what I intended

I have this vision of Kharma herding all the other dogs through the course . . . She's quite good at it, lol! She can put ALL the cowsies in one place all by herself - and we've got over 70 head!

Im not saying only those breeds can do agility all breeds can and most dogs love doing it. What im saying is Those 3 breeds are the best there the quickest its like greyhound raceing you dont think a montain dog would beat a greyhound in a race do you?

I've never shown dogs but I've shown a lot of horses and every breed can do almost everything. Sure some horses are too short to be good jumpers but they can still jump in their own class. I'm some aren't strong enough to pull wagons but they can still pull carts. Which they do all the time.

If you think your dog has what it takes to be in agility go for it!

Then you need to motivate your dog more.

Ozoro, it does seem like you know quite a bit about dogs already, and it's great that you're researching!! You don't know how many people just get a dog because it's "cute" or "sweet" or they just "want it".

Just because a dog is of a certain breed doesn't mean it's going to automatically have an affinity for the same activities. That's like saying that all men from Canada want to/are able to play hockey or all men over 6'10" want to/are able to play basketball.

Dogs have individual personalities and characters within breed lines - all I have to do is look at my two Filas to see that!

Maybe Gaddy's BC mix is of a more serious mind and perceives agility as frivolous.

LOL you bet I motivate. What might be fun for one person may not be fun for the other--for example clothes shopping is like hell for me and I always put it off, but for two of my older sisters it is Heaven and they want to do it every day !! Tippy is more interested in chasing bunny rabbits and taking 5 mile walks on the bikepath, or taking a car ride. We're still looking for a dog sports trainer because we'd like to get her into herding. We found one trainer but found out she thinks she's physcic , so we didn't go to her.
