Frenchy, I had so many trainers tell me that I had a bad breed for agility.. Someone suggested google. There's a bumload of titled cockers...

And a lot of amazing pics.. Full showcoated cockers doing jumps.. Beautiful.. ~~I think cockers are growing on me after all this time, lol~~
They aren't the easiest breed to teach, but as long as she's having fun, she is wanting to please me, so it's not like trying to force a mule to help me out..

Nopes no classes. So much drama... Makes me want to move to Ottawa. High prices, hardcore attitudes, and I found a club that sounded perfect that evaded my Qs and told me to go rent at 2 of the schools I didn't want to go to.. Niiiice.

So I'm looking at building more equipment since the jump pictured above was pretty easy to do.. Just wish I could bulldoze the backyard neighbours and have a full field going on...

Rene said that? I'm very surprised.. most of the classes I've been in have a variety of breeds and mixes, and I know Rene's is where Soshi the Shiba (on the AAC international team) started...

Nope was generalizing the 8 places I have contacted into one post. She was super nice, would love to work with her... Most expensive place I have heard of by far, and way further for me to drive. So with gas figured in and hardcore traffic ontop of the seriously expensive prices, no thanks.
She was one peron who was happy working with any breed.. but I was voicing my frustration as one big lump.

I still think the Farm is the way to go for you...

regardless, keep having fun with Cider!
