Yeah it's funny how different dogs change in speed over time. Mira started out superfast then as she learned it's to some degree like she figured how much there was to know and slowed down a bit as she was thinking and figuring things out. Now she's back up to superspeed in practice. Her trial speed is someone slower as I think I run a bit differently in trials (something I'm working on with myself!) and a lot of our trials are indoors on mats even though we virtually never train on mats so she is trying to adjust to the different surface at the same time. I'm loving seeing the babydog learn and advance with every run. Agility is so much fun Pan is going to be a nice competition dog for you!
