Mum and I have been doing agility now for about two years - training for two, competing for about 1.5 years. We absolutely love it. I love it because I get to do all kinds of neat running, jumping and weaving stuff. And Mum loves it to spend time with me (and Gracie, of course).
But she also loves it for the great shape it's getting her in. Mum used to walk about 4 miles a day, but slacked off on that as she got older. Then she took up agility with me and, dog, you should see the muscles on her legs. (Yeah, I know, maybe a little TMI!).
She says that running full out with me during a run (or two, or three, or four - three to four times a week) has gotten her in better shape than taking an hour, or more, to walk a whole four miles.
So folks out there, agility is not only good for us pups, but it's a great way for you two-leggers to get some great exercise too!
And now that Mum is looking better and better, she says that maybe she'll check out some new 7 Seven jeans. Way to go Mum!
