Obviously two separate activities....while he is playing/barking order 'speak' then 'enough'?

Enter him in a couple of Flyball competitions and he'll soon get a sore throat.....but it doesn't last long!

He seems more like a young dog that a 12 year old Jan. doesnt look bored to me because you keep him entertained and active.

He is an amazing little chap, even at his ripe old age he can still learn new things.

I may get him this set, he knows the hoop, he jumps through my arms, he knows jump, but he has never been taught the slalom

Many years ago in one of my classes the owner of a dog said..."No! he will never get over that!!"
He did!
It was a 6' wall and the dog was a Papillon.

They never cease to amaze.

PS. The wall and floor were suitably padded and safe......

Unfortunately there is no agility in this area that he can go to, the reason I want to get these things for him is because I am not as agile as Hans was, he would get down on the floor and play all sorts of Games with him, Mums a bit boring coz she can’t do that.
I don’t want to try anything too ambitious, 12 year old bones may not like it.

There is a new activity, aimed at old agility dogs, called Hoopers. Much gentler on the joints but they seem to have as much fun doing it. I am sure you will find it on YouTube. I tried it with Georgia but she is not really into games especially in a class situation. The other dogs seemed to love it though. It is easy on the handler too

Next week August 6th this little chap will be 12 years old.

The agility stuff arrived yesterday, I put it together this afternoon and this is 10 minutes into the training.

Who was it that said you canīt tech old dogs new tricks

Video will be made as soon as he can do them all one after the other.
