Beginner’s Guide for Agility Training


If your dog is a constant bundle of energy, it can be a challenge making sure your canine companion is regularly getting enough exercise. While physical activity is essential, mental stimulation also plays a role in calming your dog down. Taking your dog on a walk or run is good for the body, and puzzle feeders are great for their mind. Agility training can be the best of both worlds.
