About Agility

Agility is a fun and fast paced sport in which dogs jump over and climb up obstacles, run through tunnels, and weave between poles.

To compete successfully in agility requires teamwork.  Your dog and you must work together.  Speed and accuracy go hand in hand and a strong relationship with your canine teammate is very important.

Dogs often want to know "what's in it for me?"  Give your dog a reason to work with you and he will.  Food rewards, especially when starting out work very well with most dogs in any kind of training, including agility.  Your dog and you will be learning together.  It will take time and patience but with positive reinforcement most dogs (and people) love doing agility!
