Agility

What is Agility? Agility is obstacle racing for fun, exercise, confidence building, control, and/or competition. In agility, a dog demonstrates is agile nature and versatility by following cues from the handler through a timed obstacle course. The course has jumps, tunnels, weave poles, and other obstacles.
