most easily be described as training your dog to run an
obstacle course. In many ways, it is like a horse jumping
course where faults and time determine the placements.
The obstacles most commonly found on an agility course
include jumps, tunnels, teeters, weave poles, a-frames
and walks. All of these obstacles require separate
training and commands for your dog. There are many
variations as to how an agility course can be set up as
well as run which eliminates boredom for the dogs as well
as the owners.
Following are some of the dogs and
handlers in our club that enjoy agility training. Most of
our flyball dogs also do agility, they can be visited on
