    1. There isn’t anything specifically related to conditioning as far as what to do, mostly because I haven’t gotten to that yet and because conditioning varies depending on age, puppies being different from adults, and what you’re conditioning to accomplish. There is some good advice on conditioning a dog for agility work in Linda Stebbins article Ready Setter Go https://gordonsetterexpert.org/2015/02/08/ready-setter-goooo/
      Ready Set(ter) GOOOO!
