|What's to be worried about? Unless your dog is severely HA and you're afraid she's going to attack the instructor (which I KNOW she's not!), you should have absolutely nothing to fret over.
When I decided to start agility, I'd just come off of doing Schutzhund. Mulder already had a pretty high level of training on him going into it, and I honestly didn't anticipate it being much of a challenge for either of us. After all, I was only doing it as a way to fill the void that Sch left- I didn't really expect to get hooked!
Needless to say, I was quite wrong. Mulder of course did very well- he was working off lead the first day, doing the beginners equipment like an old pro (which, to be fair, WAS already familiar to him- he'd already done the a-frame/jumps/table in Sch). I ended up enjoying it a lot more than I expected to, and as I progressed through it learned a lot of things about my relationship with Mulder and how I train that I never would have realized without agility. I'm grateful to be involved in the sport, and I imagine you'll feel much the same way once you get started in it
