Complement your skills learnt in the obedience classes by participating in Agility. All handlers must be a financial member of DODC.
Agility is a fast, fun sport for you and your dog and is an excellent way of
improving the fitness of your dog, and yourself.
The aim is to complete a course composed of a variety of obstacles within a set time, but without incurring any faults. Faults include knocking a bar down on a jump, missing an obstacle, going over/through an obstacle the wrong way, or taking the obstacle out of sequence.
Don't worry if you have a 'little dog' as the dogs are separated into height categories so that a 'little dog' doesn't have to jump the same height as a 'big dog' - it would be a bit unfair to have a Yorkie try to jump the same jump height as a Great Dane!
