I don't want my lurcher to work as such but I'm very aware of his instincts and natural abilites so do want to encourage him to run and enjoy his freedom, obviously keeping control of each situation!! So at 7 months old (I've only had him 1 month) his recall is pretty much done now, maybe a slight reluctance if he's got half a dead sheep in his mouth but otherwise I can recall him from other dogs, play, running, and people. He also retrieves quickly and is all round very impressive with his good behaviour and quick learning. So question is what can I start doing next with him? I was approached at the weekend by someone who works his dogs and he suggested I start jumping Norris over small jumps to help build up his back leg muscles. I'm very aware that agility dogs are not started work until at least 18 months so would this be the right thing to do with Norris now? Also what other exercises can I do with him to improve his agility and ability, always mindful of his age and the fact for the first few months of his life he wasn't fed properly and didn't recieve exercise.
