The Sport of Agility
Since it's debut in 1978 Dog Agility has become one of the fastest growing sports in the world! Loosely based on equestrian jumping events the team of dog & handler navigate their way through a course of obstacles the judge designs. Courses are unique for every event and class. Agility competitions are hosted all over the World and in most local communities. Dog agility in Kelowna has become very popular over the last decade.
Many recreational agility competitors start with the goal to bond and spend more time with their pet.
The sport allows for all ages to enjoy the sport from young Juniors to people well into their 80s and beyond!
Agility is great exercise for both the dog and the handler, and is a fun, healthy way to connect and play with your dog.
Agility creates a strong bond between handler and dog and has an added benefit as it is a great form of mental stimulation for the dog.
Though some breeds are naturally better suited for agility, all dogs can participate from the smallest poodle to the largest Great Dane.
