Fair Week

Here in south-central Pennsylvania from August to October every small town hosts a fair. This week started the fair in our locale, and this fair is more than just kiddie rides and good food. It's huge! It occurs from Sunday to Saturday with many events, contests, and vendors all week. Our agility group puts on an agility demo every year. Last year my friend brought her family to come see the demo. Here's a picture of them with Cosi:

Here's the video of Cosi's run. We set up mirrored courses and have two dogs running at once so the crowd can cheer for a "winner." First dog on the table wins. It's so much fun to share our sport with the fair crowd. They certainly seem to be having a good time cheering on the dogs.

love seeing Shelties do what they do best! Wish I could be there to see this in person!

My Sheltie has never done agility (he is 3 and a half) wonder if he is too old?

Caren, 3 years old is the PERFECT age to start agility with your sheltie! Find a quality instructor (one that does a lot of foundation work), and go for it!! You'll never regret it. =:O)
