Agility Course

Dog agility is a dog sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. Dogs run off lead with no food or toys as incentives, and the handler can touch neither dog nor obstacles. Organised by Colin Agility Club, the agility course is open to dogs of all ages and breeds.
