Agility is a fun, exciting and widely popular dog sport, in which handler directs dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. During the course the handler cannot touch the dog, nor the obstacles. The goal is to complete the course without faults and as fast as possible.
The main focus of agility is on the seamless cooperation and communication between the handler and dog.
An agility course, normally navigated in around 30-60 seconds, consists of 15-22 obstacles, and the order of obstacles varies on each competition course.
For creating a course, the judge has to follow a strict set of rules. In order to memorize the order of obstacles and plan their handling strategy, handlers have a couple minutes before the start of the competition to walk the course through without their dogs.
A course navigated incorrectly leads to a disqualification, while exceeding the time allowed, or any mistakes made on the course incur penalty points. The dog-handler team navigating the course with least amount of penalties with the fastest time is the winner.
