What is Dog Agility?
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 leash with no food or toys as incentives, and the handler can touch neither dog nor obstacles.
In its simplest form, an agility course consists of a set of standard obstacles laid out by a judge in a design of his or her own choosing in an area of a specified size. The surface may be of grass, dirt, rubber, or special matting. The surface at DePaw Dog Sports is an artificial turf specifically manufactured for Agility. It was designed to provide the best traction for both humans and canines while maintaining a sufficient amount of padding should a mishap occur.
