Hi, I’m new to the forum and new to dog ownership! We bought our first ever dog a week and a half ago, Rufus is (now) a 9 week old Border Terrier puppy, both OH and I are utterly smitten! As much as I love having a puppy I’m even more excited about having a ‘proper adult dog’ as we are yet to find a middle ground between manic and fast asleep! I’m finding Border Terrier’s are very much a marmite type of dog, people either love them or think they’re mad but I have a fairly active life style being a horse owner so although we do work full time he will also be spending a lot of time out of the house exercising, although at the moment he seems to be quite cold outside in the mornings and not too happy about being out! Anyway, this is my gorgeous puppy: Would love to hear from other Border owners Finally, I really like the idea of doing agility, he’s a very clever little dog and I think we’d both enjoy it, I know he’s too young to really start doing any ‘proper’ training but I just wondered if anyone else did agility with their Border’s and ideas of fun games we could play (that won’t stress young joints!). I’m going to try and get him on the waiting list for our local group as I think they are usually fully booked!
