Agility

Some folks call this the “Doggy Olympics” as this is a dog sport where highly trained canine athletes (and their human handlers) compete against each other and the clock to follow a specific course where they jump hurdles, climb obstacles, zip through weave poles and rocket through tunnels that were designed just for them and this sport.  It is truly a team sport where dogs completely focus and rely on their humans to tell them where to go on the course and what obstacles to take.  As with all dog sports, humans tend to find this training activity to be a very bonding experience with their dogs.
