    You can check out www.aac.ca they have all the places that do agility and training, Dogs are recomended to have novice obedience because some of the hand signals are also used in agility so it make is easier on the dog and handler.
    Hope this helps

    I did agility with my dog many years ago at a place near kingsway on airport road. It was fun and there was even a drop in to practice. You didnt have to compete though and everyone was so nice and helpful. Im sure its called Grand Paws.

    My Triton has bad hips and knees. I don't want to strain him anymore, and assume that agility would only worsen his condition. Do you think I should put off agility for another dog, or see how he does in it?

    I would assume he has a Luxating Patella which is common in small breed dogs.

    I think it would be best not to stress Triton.

    Daily walks would be suitable.

    He does indeed have patellar luxation, as well as hip displacia (both not severe and don't cause pain..yet) He is on vitamins to help keep his bones/ cartilage strong.

    I'd like to enroll my puppy too when he gets older- however, until then, I hope to build some "starter" agility things in our backyard so that he can get used to some of it.

    I know they have some pretty generic agility starter kits at places like Petsmart. I'm not entirely sure of the quality of the stuff though...

    I enrolled my doberman in Tailz with their beginners' agility class. I have to say that I am satisfied with their doberman training. check them out here: http://www.tailz.ca/classes.aspx
