    With the Bulldog, I'd think they'd overheat easily with their noses, so wouldn't really be suitable for agility?

    Sharyl I thought you were getting a Gordon?

    BBs also aren't very agile so I can't imagine one competing at agility!

    The bracchy head would be less of a problem than the bow legs and width of the shoulders. They also have short stubby legs. They're really not athletic in any way shape or form!

    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    I know the breeder I got sasha off has a working cocker spaniel which she uses for agility, was surprised to see pics of it they dont look like the "show bred" cocker spaniels at all, much more like an english springer to me, which for those who dont like alot of grooming i would perhaps recommend a working cocker

    Haha I wasnt thinking agility... Imagine a BB jumping through hoops I was thinking more for showing! I've got friends that have got one and its super cute (in a gremlin kinda way)!
    Did you consider beagles for agility? They dont moult too much and can be quite athletic but can get fat and lazy if given the chance.
    I dont know if these have already been mentioned but how about Brittany Spaniels? Their furs not to long and they're super agile!

    BB bulldozing all the weavers and crashing through all the jumps. And could one make it up the scramble, let alone down again? Hmm.

    There are some dogs that just aren't built for agility. Bulldogs would have to be one of them.

    Beagles I think are in the too hard basket. Lots and lots of work.

    But I'd really like a little dog again :/

    Keeps coming back to the brittany spaniel...

    The ones I've met have been very biddable and smart, their coat isn't all that long, I've read through the grooming process & there's really not much to it - plus being used to horses it should seem like a cake-walk to you!!
