Agility is a popular sport for dogs, and it helps human and pet friends stay active together.

Typically, agility courses involve a handler directing a dog through an obstacle course as quickly as possible. Obstacles include things like jumps, poles, and tunnels. While all well-behaved dogs are welcome to try agility, those that are fast and follow instructions are the most successful.

If this sounds like a fun sport for you and your dog, you can set up agility courses at home using simple things like tunnels or weave poles. Many dog-training facilities offer classes for this too. Learn more about this fun sport from the American Kennel Club.
