Does your dog like to jump, crawl, or climb? If so, just wait until he learns agility! The best thing about agility is it works both the mind and body. It gives dogs the ability to think and accomplish tasks mentally by studying and completing new obstacles. You’ll be truly amazed how much going over an A Frame will drain your dog mentally and physically.
Dogs have an inbred desire to achieve and complete tasks (like hunting prey – they have to hide, chase, position themselves in a way that will allow them to win), and agility gives them the same sense of accomplishment. It’s also a great way to help your dog be more confident, so it’s also a great for nervous dogs. Agility teaches control, speed, precision, problem solving, and navigation skills.
Every breed is capable of learning and enjoying agility. So if your dog likes to have fun – this is a great way to do it!
