Agility is a fun sport for dogs and people.
It involves the dog negotiating a variety of different equipment against the clock. The handler trains the dog to correctly negotiate the equipment, and then directs them around the course designed by the judge.
All types of dogs and people can give it a go, from children to grandparents, from Chihuahuas to German Shepherds.
There are more than 40 clubs all over NZ who run regular agility training classes, and a number of agility competitions. Agility is an active sport, and a very social weekend activity for many in NZ.
