    Shelties and Poodles are meant to be good I believe, but to be honest, any dog can do it, and has the potential to do well. My Westie did it when we was younger, and I'll be starting with my Bernese Mountain Dog when he is old enough.

    At the Agility we run at work, we see many breeds. At the last beginners class, there was Cali (my dog - Collie x Whippet), a Finnish Lapphund, Tibetan Terrier, 2 x Border Terriers, a JRT, an English Shephard. At the advanced class was a collie, three poodles (two mini and one standard), 2 x labs and a crossbreed.

    So, just goes to show - any breed can do it :)
