Handlers train their dog to correctly negotiate a variety of different pieces of equipment from jumps and tunnels to weave poles and contact equipment. All types of dogs and people can give it a go, from children to grandparents, from Chihuahuas to German Shepherds.
In an agility competition, dogs are directed around a course. They are judged and the fastest round with no errors wins!!
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 people in NZ.
