I do not think Maddie is going to be of standard size. Is that a qualification for agility?

No, agility is for every size dog. We started at 10 months old...have to make sure the jumps are very low for the young ones. We really like agility and you guys likely will too.

Absolutely not! The dog doesn't even have to be a purebred! The division they compete in is determined by the height of the dog. So if she's little, it just means she'll jump smaller jumps. I think most Havs come under the 11" height needed to jump 8". Kodi is 11 1/4", so he has to jump 12"

From what we've seen of Maddie, I doubt that it will make any difference whether she has to jump 8" or 12".<g>
