Agility training for dogs
What is Agility for dogs? Agility is a sport involving a handler and a dog to perform as a team, passing through various obstacles like jumps and tunnels.
Nero during the Agility Competition in Bulgaria, 2015.
This sport provides many benefits like:
- physical excercise for your dog (and for you :)
- positive work on the bond between you and your dog
- preparation for the dog to start training real protection work (to bite through windows, around corners) or search & rescue (find people in ruins or in tough terrains)
Of course during the time you train you can have a lot of fun, like Nero had a lot of fun preparing for the competition only week before it:
Very important aspect of your dog training is to have a lot of positive moments. During this year's Agility Competition in Bulgaria Nero had 4 total runs in 2 of them disqualified because of errors. However in the other 2 he was great and even reached 4th place among very strong competitors.
Here is a short video on how things went :)
Kayo also had some moments with the champion in our hearts.
