Found it, thanks.
Nice 2 hear dat u mayb considering agility in d near future. Wld love 2 c larger breeds doing agility coz dun c many at d mo’. Agility can also b gradually introduced 2 ur pup as part of play eg. towels or blankets placed over ur dog 2 get him accustomed with d ‘tunnel’ obstacle. Small cones placed in a line 2 resemble d ‘pole weave’. Walking on a slightly raised plank (few inches off d ground) placed on bricks 2 get him used 2 d ‘dog walk’ n heights. Climbing up n down stairs/hills 2 get him used 2 d ‘A-frame’. Using a toy hoop 2 get him used 2 d ‘hoop jump’ n ‘jumps’ in general.
Ur pup’s joints r still developing, so best 2 keep d jumps low n at a minimum level till he’s bout 1 yo. __________________________________________________
