This dog has a great shot!. What sport do you want your dog to play with you? Let me know in the comments section below.
Treibball is a European dog sport that is just being to become more popular in the United States. It is a little like a cross between a herding competition and doggie soccer.
When you teach your dog to do the dog walk, teeter, and A-Frame in agility, it is very important that she touch the "Contact Zone," that big colored area at the beginning and end of the obstacle. This is a rule that was created for safety, so your dog won't fall if she gets too excited about her run.
There are lots of ways to teach your dog to step in the contact zone. This woman has set up a ramp for her dog, and is clicking every time the dog's foot touches the contact zone that she has marked off. She is probably giving the dog his reward off-camera.
Don't forget: you always need to give a reward every time you click! Can you set up a little ramp for your dog in the yard? Tell us how it goes in the comment section!
Here are a few dog-human disc teams practicing their moves and having a great time together.
Weave Poles really show off the "agility" of dog agility. This slow motion video demonstrates just how impressive this obstacle is.
We've been having some hot days this week. Check out this fun way some dogs like to cool off!
Since I posted cat agility, I figured I should find an Agility video with an actual dog. This boy won the Young Kennel Club agility championship at Crufts in 2008. He's younger than most of the other winners I found. Crufts is the biggest dog show in England, so that's a pretty big deal.
No dogs in this video, but I just had to post it. I had no idea there was such a thing as Cat Agility!
