I am thinking of beginning dog agility training with my Australian cattle dog. She is athletic and eager to learn, so I think it would be fun for both of us. There is an indoor agility course near my house where people are allowed to practice, so that is a big plus.
What I would like to know is, what should my dog be proficient with before I even begin with agility training? What kind of training base need she have before she starts on the obstacles themselves? She will sit-stay almost indefinitely, and she heels offleash like a champ (we run around a fenced-in baseball diamond together).
