That's GREAT! Are you going to do obedience (competition or rally) first or are you just using the clicker to get the puppy "Basics" down?

There is a woman in my area (tri-state) who is a member of Maltese rescue. She does agility with her maltese who is quite good. She has, unfortunatly, decided only to do jumpers though because her rescue's knees aren't good - a problem that plagues many toy breeds.

Yes, please come join the forum and introduce yourself. If you have questions or ideas about clicker training, we encourage you to post! :D

We had Digby in agility and even a competition.  I ended the competitive agility and just continued with an other club doing fun agility, she really loves agility.  I would have continued but at the time the competitive agility club held their competition in the middle of summer and Digby wilts in the heat, never failed the weekend of the comp it was in the 90's too darn for me too!  But now they have switched the date to fall, and new trainer in town so I may start up again with her, or try Rally O.  Casper has tons of energy so I may try him in agility, he has come along on our fun nights and had fun - he followed Digby everywhere, even the A frame, the teeter totter.

Agility is alot of fun.  Havent decided quite yet about the Rally O have to watch it in person to really get a feel for it.

I will be sure to check out your site!  Thanks
