Many of you know that I just love dog agility! Not only is it a great sport, but I get to spend loads of time with my Mum and Gracie, running around and having fun. And we get to meet new people and other pups.
One of my favorite things about the sport is the jumping. I could jump, forever!!!! One of my vets once said that I was built like a deer and especially built for jumping. And with jumping you can go pretty darn fast sometimes, I like to go fast.
I like competing too. Not against anyone in particular, but just against our selves and our previous times - improving and getting better. And it really gives me a rush when Mum and I know that we got a Q for a new title, or a best time for one of our classes.
For those of you who are new to the sport of agility: Dog agility is a sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. Dogs must run off-leash with no food or toys as incentives. The obstacles can include various types of jumps, dog walks, a frames, tires, tunnels, chutes, teeters, pause tables, and weaves.
And the best part is there are venues of competition for both mixed breeds and purebreds, so anyone can compete.
