Yes! Its a lot of fun. Roxy is usually the first dog in class to really get new things, but sometimes it can be difficult to keep her attention. I'm pretty sure she would be able to qualify at the novice level, since it is on leash. But the trouble comes when we go off leash. 80% of the time she is great, but she is such a social butterfly that she will often just stop the course to say hi to a person or dog sitting nearby! She is also having a bit of trouble with backing up in heel position, but hopefully she'll figure it out soon.
After x-mas we might try agility too. That might be more her speed since its is a quicker paced activity. She already knows how to go through the tunnels and chutes, over the a-frame, and can do a reliable sit or down stay anywhere so she has a good start.
