Our canine activities
Agility is an obstacle course for dogs, loosely based on show jumping for horses. In agility a dog has the opportunity to romp around and have fun while working in partnership with its master. It also helps to develop and strengthen the relationship between man and dog.
Any dog can do this sport, whether sportive or not, as long as his introduction to the various obstacles is conducted in a positive way, reinforced by play and reward.
However, it’s not all down to the dog, the handler must also learn to focus and direct his dog. The handler’s body language and body position is very important as it shows the dog the direction to take. The relationship between master and dog needs to be strong in order to be able to negotiate the obstacles because it is more often the fault of the handler that mistakes are made!!.
