Lazy he is not and he is always surfing the kitchen sides when I am not in their to see what he can eat - this is a picture of him watching my son eating his breakfast very very keenly............
I reckon he would be good for obedience or agility but not having much experienced of lurchers and what I have read thought it would be something they would hate - but not him he would love it or maybe he could get a job as a food taster
I don't know who told you that they wouldn't enjoy agility, my lot would love it
(Otis at ten still jumps stiles, Matilda at 12 will crawl through a 12 inch gap if it leads to a field with bunnies, Minstrel and Theo spent hours yesterday chasing each other round and over straw bales in the field) The point is that you can't get them to do something they don't want to do, I think that's why people think they are lazy and don't want to do anything - they'll happily sleep if there's nothing better to do...Theo has a low boredom threshold and will only do something two or three times to prove he can do it, never more, then he's off to do something more exciting
Min would like agility best if there was a type of pursuit agility, where you got to chase your mates around the course at the same time
Otis would like fly ball if the ball was replaced with food
...and all sighthounds are notorious countersurfers
