Agility Group Lessons – Aldergrove
What is Agility:
Agility is a dog sport in which the handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. Dogs run off-leash with no food or toys as incentives, and the handler is not allowed to touch the dog or the obstacles. Consequently the handler must rely on their movement and verbal cues to direct the dog, requiring both training and team work. Agility training involves both training the dog to perform the obstacles as well as training the handler how to communicate with the dog.
Who can play agility?
Everybody! Agility is open to all dogs, regardless of size or breed and both young and old, athletic and, well, not as athletic!
What are the benefits?
Agility promotes an incredible bond between the dog and handler. The time spent training truly enhances your relationship with your dog and opens doors to a more positive approach to all training. Often it leads to a better behaved dog who is easier to live with because of the physical and mental stimulation it offers. Plus agility is tons of fun, the courses are never the same and there is always a lot of strategy involved. We also share a real sense community among agility competitors and it is a great way to connect with other dog lovers.
