Agility was first introduced to the UK in 1978 and the structure of the competition has not changed very much over the years. Many people think that Agility is the most enjoyable of all the canine sports for both dogs and humans.
It is fast, furious and a great favourite with competitors and spectators alike. Your dog does not have to be a pedigree, or pure-bred dog to take part, but it must be registered with the Kennel Club on either the Breed Register or the Activity Register to compete.
Agility is a comparatively new form of dog competition, where the animal's fitness and the handler's ability to train and direct the dog over and through certain obstacles are tested.
If you decide that Agility is a suitable activity for you and your dog, then Leamington Dog Training Club can help you. We have a dedicated section that trains all sizes and breeds of dogs in agility techniques.
