    That's right my crazy Red Head BC Tempest started her agility career this past Friday at my local clubs Spring AKC trial 4/4/14-4/6/14. We didnt get any Q's this weekend, but her runs were amazing and I am so happy with how she is coming along.

    Here is her very first run in competition on Friday morning:

    Good work! She is obviously enjoying herself. Nice to see you around again, Barnhill.

    Wow! Nice!! Makes me realise just how far Evie and I have to go.... She's super fast through those weavers once she got it right!

    Awesome work.

    That was great! Thanks for sharing that. I love to watch the teamwork and communication between you and Tempest. She shows great control and patience for such a young pup!

    Thanks! In class tonight she had an attack of the baby dog and was all over the place, but she still had fun!

    She is still so young! Border Collies are still puppies until about 3 years, aren't they?

    Not sure, she is my first BC. She is only 18 months right now so she is always on the go!
  13. Ripleygirl Experienced Member

    That was awesome! Well done you and Tempest - for 18 months she is fantastic!
  14. brody_smom Experienced Member

    I'm pretty sure I have read in at least one publication about Border Collies that they don't reach emotional maturity until about 3 years of age. I will try to find a source for you. Anyway, 18 months is still a young dog, and she is doing great.

    You are right, Brody's Mom, certainly with working, herding BC's their mental maturity does not arrive until 3 to 4.

    Yeah, she came from a really strong working line.

    So this past weekend was the All American Pet Expo here in Columbus, OH. I got asked to come help out with running the sound for the Dynamo Dogs show they had there all weekend.

    Long story short we ended up doing the Agility demos all weekend with a few other friends and Saturday Gail from the Dynamo Dogs asked if I wanted to play disc with Tempest in her show. So of course I said YES!! Here is our first appearance on Saturday night...

    Here she is working the agility demo...
