Many will have listened to speak sometimes of agility, seen as a sport for capable dogs that draw for obstacles and that demonstrate to physical qualities and an answer to the exemplary training. And it is that this discipline, nowadays considered everything a sport with its matches, events and a great amount of followers, was born like an educative game. And although we do not consider that our dog does agility at competitive level or of exhibition we can use, it like basic activity that fulfills two aspects fundamental: in order to also train and to educate and like physical exercise for the dog. As it commented agility were born like an educative game in a canine exhibition in London at the end of years 70, but nowadays extended his popularity and it is not difficult to see in a park dogs jumping, running and enjoying next to his masters, crossing and surpassing obstacles. It is a basic game, inspired by the equestrian one, but adapted the dog and with which we can be useful to train them at the same time as to amuse themselves and to make exercise together.
Although competitive level or of exhibition we see that they exist a type of obstacles designed for agility, with a little imagination and good spirit we can mount our own circuit of obstacles in the park, a garden or even, if our dog is small and we have to sufficient we can do it space in house. By all means, as all educative game requires of much patience and is dogs that demonstrate to more interest than others, but with certainty we can obtain that our dog secures agility, makes exercise, learns to follow our indications and, by all means, to share awhile with us of very comforting game. Can practice agility all the dogs? As we indicated, one is to raise a circuit of obstacles that the dog will have to draw for following the way that we indicate and we teach to him, so we will use visual signals, palms so that we guide to him and the dog is learning the route.
