What Is Dog Agility?
Dog agility is a competitive sport that tests a person’s skills in training and handling of dogs over a timed obstacle course. Competitors race against the clock as they direct their dogs to jump hurdles, scale ramps, burst through tunnels, traverse a see-saw and weave through a line of poles in an obstacle course configuration designed to challenge a handler’s competitive and training skills. With scoring based on faults similar to equestrian show jumping, dog agility has become an exciting spectator event.
