Handlers train their dog to correctly negotiate a variety of different pieces of equipment from jumps and tunnels to weave poles and contact equipment. All types of dogs and people can give it a go, from children to grandparents, from Chihuahuas to German Shepherds. In an agility competition, dogs are directed around a course. They are judged and the fastest round with no errors wins!!
