When to start agility

I looked at the recent thread on this subject, but with nearly 300 replies, I thought it would be eaiser to just ask. LOL Sorry if this is a repeat.

At what age should a dog/pup begin agility training? I heard somewhere that a dog should be one year old or above. Is this an accurate age?

If the agility school in question has puppy levels (which usually include very low jumps, teeters, a-frames, and dog walks) then start whenever you like! Otherwise, you should probably wait until the dog's growth plates are closed which, depending on the breed, will be between 1 and 2 years of age.

Basic obedience (sit, down, stay, recall, and leave it) are a must as a pre-requisite, IMO.
