KENT, Wash. (AP) - One student in a suburban Seattle dog agility class is drawing a lot of attention, and not just for her athletic skills. Amy is a pig.

Amid the barking of corgis, collies and Labradors, visitors will sometimes hear a snort. And there’s Amy, jumping through the hoop, balancing on the teeter-totter, retrieving the dumbbell and zipping through the play tunnel.

Lori Stock owns 5-month-old Amy and says her indoor pig is a quick learner and very motivated by food rewards.

KOMO reports (https://is.gd/pawibB ) that Amy has already graduated from puppy manners class and has moved on to agility and obedience at the Family Dog Training Center in Kent.

Training center president Kathy Lang says that’s a first, though she recalls a pygmy goat did attend several training classes.
