I do agility with Bogie and Cassie. We do it in a "Just for Fun" class. The dogs have a great time. You can start a young dog with tunnels and weaves, but like Carina said, I wouldn't let Gustave jump or do full size equipment yet. The following is a clip of my friend working with Cassie in while I film it. I am very lucky to be able to do a class that has four Maltese in it.

It wouldn't load for me. Where are you training? On Eastlake rd? If so, Alan was my teacher all those years ago! We were at UpperSuncoast then.

I already startet in my dogschool with playfull agility when she was 10 Mont. She loves to Jump and runs tru the tunnel! 😃For the real Agility she has to be older and listen to all the commands. I think Agility is a fun thing to do! Were i go we also hafe a small- small group class... For Maltese, Chihuauas and Bolonkna Zwetna.... Lili loves it! I can only recomand it 😀😀😀😀

Puppies can start learning foundations for agility at any age. No full-height contacts or jumps until the dog is full grown. Most Maltese end up in the 8 inch jump height class for most venues. Only USDAA still has our toy dogs jumping 12 inches in the championship class.

We did it! Just came back from our first class. It was soooo much fun. They did very basic stuff. Weave poles, tunnels, stays on table etc. We did jumps but the bar was set at the lowest height, so he was basically just walking over it.

We did a frame too, but I think it was set pretty low. Like lower than my waist height. Hope that was ok. I was afraid Gustave might be scared but he wasn't at all. He loved it!

That sounds like a training A frame. Wait till you see the 9 footer!!!! Vulfie even had trouble with it!! And little light weight dogs on the teeter are always fun to watch.
