Yep, he doesn't need to jump anything any higher than his elbow until he is a year old. After he hits a year I start some full height jumping and start weave pole training. Contacts, tunnels, the table and good foundation skills can be taught to him now. My young border collie started foundation work, tunnel work and the table at 8 weeks of age!

Lion won't be able to show until he is 18 months old so you have plenty of time for good teaching!

Enjoy him, agility is loads of fun. I used to do 3-day eventing but had to sell my mare when I moved to a different state. My dogs are now my show animals. They are much cheaper and more portable than the horses were.
