Agility is a team sport that reflects mutual respect, understanding and clear communication within the pair. The handler and the dog. Agility requires great commitment and patience. It is a slow and precise build-up of skills both from the handler’s and from the dog’s side. Both need to be fit, focused and motivated. Before moving on from the foundations to longer courses and jumps, an x-ray is required of the elbows and hips of the dog with a vet check that gives the green light to continue. Health and safety is above all.
