Index to the breeds and how they fare at agility
Many thanks to everyone who has sent comments on the breeds.
I hope this little directory will be of interest to anyone who is choosing an agility dog or who runs an agility dog and wants to know if it's typical of its breed. It will also be helpful to people who want a pet dog to have fun with and to be a companion. If you are choosing any pure bred dog you really need to like the breed for its own sake as well as for the prowess in agility. Crossbreeds take their characteristics from both parents so if you are choosing a crossbreed or a mongrel make sure that you are going home with a dog that you can live with for the rest of its life. Comments from people who already have the dog breed you are interested in can be a much more useful guide than just reading about standard characteristics.
