All can do agility; some are just more talented than others.
If YOU want to try agility, then do it. Since you are the one who has to put the dog in the car and go train, you get to pick the sport.

If agility is what you're after, the dog must have a strong working desire, and equally important, a proper build that allows them to do agility without injuring themselves.
I do not know agility, but I think for most, the act of agility itself is the reward for the dog. (ie the dog wants to be out there with you doing agility, and is not simply doing it for the treats). Not necessarily one particular drive, but the dog must be driven to work.

Would guess high prey drive = excellent lure coursing?
Wonder if it works with flyball as well or not.
I really want to do agility, but I think my dog's more cut out for chasing things so far, lol!
