Want to know more about dog agility?  Dog agility is a sport in which handlers direct their dogs over a timed obstacle course, with scoring based on faults and time.  No leash or other physical contact to direct the dog is allowed.

Agility has many benefits for both dog and owner: it builds a strong dog-owner bond, provides intellectual stimulation and an energy outlet for the dog, and helps both dog and owner keep in good physical condition.   Various obstacles such as jumps, weave poles, dog walk, open tunnel, a-frame, see-saw and pause table are amongst the challenges for the agility team.
