More about Dog Agility

This show originated with an agility demonstration by MADTA during the 2004 Fair. Because of the flurry of interest it generated, it was added as a show. The handlers direct their dogs over an obstacle course consisting of an A-Frame, dog walk, pipe tunnel, collapsed (cloth) tunnel, and hurdles — and that’s just for the Intermediate class. Advanced competitors also have to deal with a see-saw, weave poles, and a tire jump. Unlike many other shows, not only the dog but also the exhibitor must be in good physical condition, as both will have to run the course. Like all the other animal shows, a completed record book is required to compete.

DOG RALLY

Rally is a dog sport based on obedience.  Unlike regular obedience, instead of waiting for the judge’s orders, the competitors proceed around a course of designated stations with the dog in heel position.  The course consists of 10 to 20 signs that instruct the team what to do.  Unlike traditional obedience, handlers are allowed to verbally encourage their dogs during the course.
