    I used to do it with my last dog just for fun, he was faster than me!! LOL

    Try and google it and see if you find a training centre near you that do it then go along and have a look and meet the people. It is fun and the dogs love it. X

    Look on the website AgilityNet. On the clubs page you should find some local contacts, though many clubs have a waiting list. Costs are very variable. I pay £3 for a session (one and a half hours), but I've heard of others paying £10, or a very cheap £1.50.
    You don't have to be all that fit - the top championship handlers may be, but there are people in their seventies competing and doing quite well. There's one handler I know who stands in the middle of the course and directs her dogs around her from there. Quite a few people with disabilities do agility too. Bear in mind running a course takes under a minute, so you don't have to run for long. It's great fun, so give it a go.
