Agility Sports That are Perfect for the Action Junkie in Your Canine
Agility is the perfect sport for canine looking for a little action.
Agility is probably the most popular and best known of all the sports for canine athletes. Its easy to see why. Your dog gets to do what dogs like to do: move around, jump, run, climb on things, and play! Agility is a high-speed sport in which the handler directs her dog through an obstacle course of jumps, tunnels, weave poles, teeter-totter, and other obstacles. The goal is for the dog to complete the course without exceeding the standard course time and without incurring any faults. Faults include knocking jump bars, not completing an obstacle, going around a jump instead of over it, and failing to touch contact zones places that the dog must touch as she navigates certain obstacles, to prevent excessive speed and dangerous leaps from the obstacle.
