The sport of dog agility involves handlers running courses with their dogs and directing them through a course of jumps, tunnels, weaving poles and other obstacles. As with the equestrian sport of showjumping, it’s the fastest clear round that wins and it’s a sport nearly anyone can get involved in with the family pet.

Dog agility is a sport suitable for most breeds with canines as small as Pugs and Jack Russell Terriers right up to large breeds such as DobermansGolden Retrievers, Collies and Labradors plus working breeds such as KelpiesBorder Collies and Australian Shepherds

Handlers can be any age with everyone from teenagers to seniors taking part in training and competing dogs and currently is very popular with older female participants who can no longer play high intensity sports (such as football, netball, hockey etc).

The Agility Dog Club of SA also offers puppy classes up to 12 months which teach basic foundation exercises to prepare for agility training.
