Just thought this could be an interesting thread...
Other then reenforcing general commands and such, has anyone noticed a change in temperment, even how they react to you?
Tucker has had only 4 agility lessons so far, and I have already noticed a change. He is more intent on me, and now he LOVES the car! He would never willingly get into the car and it was always a battle until we started agility.
Look forward to your posts!

Gonzo & me are active in Flyball, Rally-O, & Frisbee. For fun, we do Agility & Herding.

Fozzie is starting puppy Agility later this summer, and he's learning basic recall, tugging, and going over "jumps" (laying on the ground) :p He does LOVE frisbees but I dunno if Corgis are built to be frisbee dogs!

Chico is doing agility, obedience and tracking.

Ven is going to be doing Schutzhund, S&R, conformation (non american) Tracking, obedience (aside from schutzhund) and maybe agility (depends on how big and built he gets. If he's anything like his dad he will over 100lbs and have a very muscular built).

Holly doesnt do anything at the moment but i would love to get her into agility, i think she'd be good at it since she's a bc and all. she is very nervous though so im not sure how she would react if i took her to a club or whatever.

PinkSheep,
I have heard that lots of nervous dogs benefit from doing agility.

You should give it a try! Tucker loves it...
