Event Description

Agility is a sport that appeals to all dog lovers ... it has great spectator appeal.  Dogs and handlers compete on obstacle courses racing against the clock.  Classes of different levels and complexity are designed to test handler and dog teams' strategy, skill, accuracy, speed and distance handling.  The dogs love negotiating tunnels, jumps, dogwalks, teeter totters, weave poles, etc.  Agility is the fast-growing sport in the American Kennel Club.  Over one million runs were recorded last year.
