A Social Leisure Activity for Dogs and their Owners
Agility is a fast, furious and fun sport for you and your dog. Dogs are trained to run through a series of obstacles similar to horse show jumping, but with a few different obstacles such as the tyre, seesaw, A frame and dog walk.
Any breed can take part not just pedigrees (or collies for that matter!)
Competitive agility is a speed and accuracy trial – handlers are tested on their ability to train and direct their dogs.
But agility is not just for competition!
The large majority of agility enthusiasts are in it purely for fun.
Agility offers many benefits to both you and your dog, including
Improved control of your dog
Provides mental and physical stimulation
Strengthens the bond and builds on the relationship between you and your dog
Increases your dog’s confidence in new situations and when faced with new challenges
Increased co-operation with you and your dog working together as a team
Can assist in channelling a destructive dog’s energy into positive behaviour
Most importantly agility is great fun for all who take part!
