Agility Anyone?

Has anyone tried agility with their SV?
I've seen bunnies do agility (the cutest thing you will ever see ever) and I wanted to start my bunny but never did. Now I'm thinking I want to try it with Zeddie. It will help work her brain as well as her body, but we have no competitions in Canada :down:
Anyone have any tips/pictures/videos?

Yes, i set up an agility course for Taj. It was a lot of fun and he learned quickly.

I still have part of it and will use it again when i have more room.

They had an agility course set up at the Meet the Breeds pet expo in NY last year... but the crowds were so intense and loud standing around it that Zari would run the couple obstacles at the far end of the course but didn't want to run near the crowds (who were not really operating with "inside voices" so much)...

But previously over the years there have been courses set up at TICA shows as Patti mentions and they can have fun with them...

yes, you can even get little kits to use at home...or just design it from your furniture. But having a course I think not only stimulates the cat's interest but may keep the human's interest beyond swishing a toy back and forth :)

That is what I am planning on doing after this weekend...buying a small agility course from the pet store and setting it up. Zeddie's energy level is quite a bit lower than what I've heard other SVs energy levels but I think it would be fun ;)
