Since herding lessons have been postponed until next summer at the very least, we've turned to agility to pass the time. We normally have lessons once a week or once every other week, and we may get Maple signed up for group agility lessons through winter since she loves it so much.


In case anyone is wondering, Maple is about 1 year and 6 mos. Her weight tends to sit on the high end of the thirties (38+ lbs). The woman we take lessons with, Stephanie, has worked with agility border collies for most of her life. She has worked with a variety of different border collie backgrounds, from work-bred, sports-bred, to show-bred.


The videos are me running Maple through some courses, and the photo is of her practicing her safe-dismount from the A-Frame.

Very cool video. I had a heck of a time viewing it (don't worry, the problem was on my end; I have a script killer installed on Firefox and had to switch browsers) but I enjoyed watching your girl run. I'm looking forward to the 2nd video.

Maple looks like she really enjoys agility.


When did she get so big?  I keep thinking of her as a tiny puppy.

Nice! Go Maple Go! She's adorable and looks like she's having a lot of fun.
