About Agility Level 1
In Agility, a dog and his handler run together in an Agility Course as a TEAM. Agility training builds a strong bond between the dog and the handler as the dog learns to respect and obey cues off-leash while running at top speed. On the other hand, the handler will have to learn the canine language of using the body and movement to communicate with his dog in the agility course. The dog is directed by his handler to jump over obstacles (Broad Jumps, Bar Jumps), duck into tunnels or chutes, run over planks of wood (Dog Walk & A-Frame), and weaves in between poles (Weave Poles).
Agility makes sense to the dog as the nature of this sports is very much like the way the dog hunts for his prey. The dog becomes energized, his face radiates and eyes shine with excitement as he enjoys this dog sports running alongside his handler. This is why Agility is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world.
