In agility, dogs learn to control different parts of their bodies
A dog must learn to look to it’s owner for direction. He can’t just run ahead and go off on his own. Agility is fun, but very disciplined. Traveling through an agility tunnel helps dogs to learn that new activities can be safe and fun. A dog learns early that going into dark places like a tunnel is not so scary.
Agility helps dogs develop good balance and control of their actions. Consequently their muscles and hearts become strong. Jumping through this tire jump takes good energy, strong legs and good aim!
Agility can help your dog gain confidence the same as when you play sports or perform in a play. This is a dog walk. Dogs learn to climb up one side, walk on a bridge and then go down the other side. To do this, dogs have to be comfortable with heights.
