It has been a while!! Used to compete with my collies a longggggg time ago...started to compete big spaniel but he has spinal disk disease and a heart murmur. Only found this out recently but it explains a lot! He only got to the training stage..never competed. Now have a cocker spaniel who is 9 months old...I am out of touch with things like - height measures - last time I competed I had to have my girl measured before I could go in my class? and she got a life height book? How does it all work now? Where do I even start with my spaniel? I know he needs to be 12 months + before he does anything strenuous. I do plan on teaching him left/right and lots of ground movements from now until 12 months +. hes a clever dog and needs to use that brain! (and i love and miss agility!) Any pointers most welcome, I also have no issue waiting till 18 months + if thats better for joints!
