Why is the sport of agility one of the fastest growing dog sports in the world? The popularity of this sport is due to the fact that it is just so much fun for both the dog and the handler. Most dogs love to run and jump and agility gives them the place to do just that.
The best part is that all breeds of dogs can successfully compete in agility. There are five jump heights so that the smallest and largest breeds of dogs can run a course.
A dog and handler must complete an obstacle course full of jumps, tunnels, and obstacles that a dog must traverse. It is a timed event and the fastest dog with no mistakes wins the class. The handler must learn how to direct the dog along the course without interfering, while maintaining the dog's speed. Each course is designed by a judge and is unique. Most dogs love agility and are naturally motivated to run a course. Positive motivation keeps the dogs eager to work and perform.
