Actually there is nothing wrong with early agility training IMO when done properly and according to the age of the dog taking precautions.
Pupies can pretty much do it all w/ modifications.
So for example:
no full height equipment,
no jumps at their jump height and
no weave poles
until they are fully developed IMO

I agree about the age thing, they say not to run with your dog until they are 18mo/2yr(?) because their joints are still being formed and you can injure them if you run/jog with them too young.

His hips are definitely tender. I haven't ran with him at all. I don't think my joints can handle it anymore.
