Agility training book for 10yo human

March 25th, 2007, 12:20 PM
My 10 year old nephew recently got a dog from the shelter that he wants to do agility training with. She is about a year old a basenji mix, we think. He is teaching her basic obedience now, she is learning really quick. He lives in a very rural area, and does not have access to any training classes at this point. He is excellent with animals, and I want to encourage him in this (I live about 3 hours away and see him once a month). Are there any books that you could recommend? Either O.B., or agility? Actual training or stories to keep his interest peaked?

This may not be much help.. But when I got interested in agility I went to the library. They only had one book, but it was a start for me. Lots of pictures and such.

Here is a list of books from Amazon, not sure if any are okay for a ten year old though.

Click and Play Agility and Introduction to Dog Agility are my fav's for beginner training. I've heard great things about "from the ground up" by Kim Collins but I haven't read it yet!
