That looks like a pretty intense schedule Heather...You and Hanna will be great  :) Lol, no wonder you don't have time for a third Boxer......I wish we had that kind of stuff available around here, without having to drive like 2 hrs

Looks pretty hectic but also fun.  Wish Kiah seemed excited about agility but she really had no interest.  Maybe now that she is older, I will try again.

Hi HannaBanana,
  we are from South of Boston as well, living in Brockton.
Our boxer Leila is 9 months old, and has a lot of energy. We would love
to get her into agility training as well.  Where do you take your boxers
for training?

 Leila and family..

I've been wanting to look into that for Bruce, I think he'd enjoy it, but who knows...thanks for the reminder, I'm going to try to find somewhere around here to do it.

Good luck Hanna!!!

Also at 9 months you most likely will be doing light agility and or more foundations work.   Good schools will not do much jumping or equiptment with dogs that are young and still growing.  However tunnels, weave poles smaller non-joint related stuff is fine.
