What is Agility? - Agility is Show Jumping for Dogs.

Agility is the epitome of exciting teamwork.

Thrilling to participants and spectators, it blends desire, control, training and athletic ability into a rip-roaring good time.

The object is for a handler to direct his or her dog over a timed obstacle course without the dog making a mistake such as knocking down a bar jump or missing a weave pole.

Dogs leap colourful hurdles, hustle through tunnels, take a turn on the see-sew and hasten up and down ramps on courses that resemble playgrounds and are never the same twice.

It doesn't matter if they are purebred or mixed-bred, large or small, young or middle-aged.

Through agility training, dogs release their energy constructively and learn how to be under control and in high spirits at the same time.

Agility dogs and their owners are better than best friends. They are partners.

Every dog owner can enjoy agility, too.

It doesn't matter if you are young or old, quick or slow, graceful or clumsy. If you have a sense of humour, or wish you could find the one you lost, a world of fun awaits you.

Would you like to build a better bond with your dog?
Make new friends?
Travel to new places?
Accept new challenges?

You can do it all through the sport of agility.

Best of all, you can set your own goals and accomplish them on your own schedule.

Welcome to agility, a game so captivating that a short demonstration spawned an international sport.

How much fun is agility?

Ask anyone who's tried it and you'll get the same answer: Agility is the most fun you can have with your dog.
