|I think you've gotten some awesome advice. I've enjoyed reading this thread, too.
The only thing I would like to add is that with so many different venues for agility, AKC, UKC, and the other pet registries along with whether you are going to be working with weavers, jumpers, preferred, or some other special class, it's important to make sure that you have the rules down pat in that venue/class before competing.
If you feel like you are well versed in the venue and you just need to tweak some things here and there, I don't see a huge problem with taking a break from traditional classes and finding a private tutor.
I know that my dog is fine with agility in large classes, but does much better learning obedience in a one-on-one environment and alot of that has to do with building focus.
