Dog agility is a dog sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. Dogs run off leash with no food or toys as incentives, and the handler can touch neither dog nor obstacles.
Agility is a sport that requires some athletic co ordination and participation on the behalf of the handler, as well as the dog. It’s a fun, energetic, easy way to bond with your dog, and great way for energetic dogs to blow of steam and excess energy.
Some who take the Citizen K9 Dog Agility Classes go on to compete in CKC or UKC shows, but others take the classes just for fun and their own enjoyment.
