Hi Mlle!! welcome in the Forum 
Also I like agility but I don't know if likes to my dogo!  :|

In my country few dogos practise the agility... very few! I believe that it also concerns physical predisposition... which changes with  the dog! The Dogos are very agile, but some of them are very heavy unlike others lighter, therefore I believe that not all the dogos are able for Agility...depends on the single dog!
I will try Agility with Leon, mi doguito... but I believe that he likes to do other... (eat, sleep, and destroy every thing!! ) :lol:  :roll:

Yes some Dogos like this and do it. We have here 1 female that loves it. Also there are som homepages in Russia where they train agility with dogos. I shall try to find the links to you. So it is not impossible to do this.

You must be willing to go through a lot of Dogos to get one that really likes agility and excel in it.
Even than it will probably not be able to compete at a high level.
And if you eventually find one it will be one that was not suit to be a Dogo in the first place.

So perhaps I'm at the right place for looking to a good dog...could you tell me about the most important aspect which I have to look and may be you could propose me some breeders (no way is too far :-P)

Thanks...so much - the videos are very amusing! :-D It remembered me to good old times...

I'm not agree with you. I heard a lot of time that the dogo has a good obience and he's also very agile - so these are the importants items of the agility. And when the owner likes agility, he transform it on the dog...no?
