    hey
    My names maggie
    My family owns a cross-bred dog that I want to start on agility.
    He is a little anti-social towards other dogs though, and most other people.
    He is easily distracted but learns very well.
    we have had him for about 2 years and he can already

    sit
    stay
    drop
    spin
    sit up - from a down position
    come
    jump through hoops and over bars
    find hidden food
    leave it
    go get it
    outside
    take something outside
    front paws
    and he sits on your lap

    and he is only about 2 years old

    How can we train him to ignore distractions and can a cross-bred dog compete in agility in australia

    You can probably find something on the net that will tell you. I wouldn't think not being a purebred would exclude your dog from agility competitions.
