I can't imagine why not. Any dog can do agility, really. But yes, Goldens are good because they are athletic, not to big, and trainable.

Any dog can be a good sport dog, but I believe goldens are very good in obedience.

Dakota's breeder has a Golden that does agility, and she's wonderful at it. She's not as agile as the Border Collies, or as swift as the Jack Russells, but she's very consistent and I think she's great at it.

I do, too. I named him all wrong for a Border Collie, it is ideal for BCs to have one and two-syllable names, (They say, because BCs move so fast, you have to get the name and command out in a hurry. ) but when I saw him as a baby that was the first name that came to mind, and it really stuck.

Agility is all about having fun, and fun is one of the things that Goldens seem to do best. I think it's awesome to watch them work because they always show so much enthusiasm.

Like most things, it depends. There's an amazing "Golden" team in my area - the dog's name is Rosie and she is FAST! Moake, down in Texas was on the world team with a Golden. So, in short - there are some great Goldens out there.

The problem I see with GOldens is that many come from obedience backgrounds and well, while a Golden can be chunky and do well in obedience, the same is not true in agility. A heavier set Golden is going to have problems - first in terms of competitivness and second in terms of the physical strain jumping puts on the dog's body.
