Lunar Posted September 14, 2004 Report Share Posted September 14, 2004 I'm in a bit of a quandry here. I don't know if I should start agility now, or hold off. The problem is that I'm still in college. I'm planning on getting a puppy after I graduate, when my fiance and I have fenced the yard and our life is stable. But right now during the semester I'm living with my parents and Oreo - Oreo is my dog that my dad "half" owns - she will be staying here when I move because this is her home, this is her family, and I feel it wouldn't be fair to her to uproot her, espeically at this age. Oreo is 9 years old. She's slowing down a little, but I think she would still have fun learning new things. But I only have 8 months here. I know to do agility, at least around here, you have to take a "pre-agility" course before you can even take the beginners courses. So my problem is, would it be better to learn agility along with my new puppy when she's old enough? Or would it be better for me to learn the basics beforehand? I don't even know how much classes Oreo and I would be able to do before I moved (and once I move there's no way I can contiue it, I'll be too far away). Would that be fair to her? Or would it be beneficial to her if I did just a few things with her now? Granted money is very tight on a college budget, I'm not making much, so the decision may be made for me.
