We don't do agility, but I love going to shows to watch. I have a nine-year old Jack Russell that I adopted last year. He would have been a great show dog. Our other Jack is also a rescue that is eight. Our third doggie is an American Kennel Dog, and she would win a kissing competition.

 

Your photos are awesome. Your setup is great.

I'm taking beginner classes with my 10-year old hound. She's doing great with tunnels, chutes and A-frame, but still has to conquer that scary see-saw! But it's been truly wonderful to see how well even older dogs can do in this sport. (Actually, the hardest part of all this is training the handler!)

We just went to one of these shows this past weekend and it was awesome to see. It was even more special when they mentioned that all their show dogs are rescue dogs.

Nice to hear you are running agility. I am retired from running agility with my golden and cavaliers due to my knee replacement. Sold all my  equipment. I competed in Akc, CPE, Nadac as well as got Canadian agilty titles. Was trial sect for my local club for 10 yrs and have been trial chair several times. Helped start the Twin Citites Cavalier Club twice a yr agilty trials. Miss the trials. I still show in conformation and hope to continue showing as we full time.
