Agility is an athletic event that requires a team effort between handler and dog. Dogs and handlers must negotiate an obstacle course while racing against the clock. Agility is a great form of exercise for both dog and handler, and a fun way to bond. Participants don't have to compete to enjoy this sport.
Teams can work toward and earn titles in sanctioned trials through various organizations. There are different levels of competition beginning with entry level agility (Novice), progressing to more complex levels that require dogs and handlers to demonstrate higher levels of training and performance.
