Heather Adams, KPA CTP, CBATI, talks about the sport of agility and how it can help dogs learn to focus, as well as gain self-control and confidence, while providing a fun outlet for dog/owner teams. Whether you use agility for fun or join the competitive side of the sport, it offers huge benefits that go beyond having a good time running around the ring. Heather discusses how she incorporates agility training with clients’ dogs that have certain behavior issues, as a means for long term positive change. She talks about getting started in the sport, what to look for in a trainer, when to start your dog, what type of training is required, and realistic expectations. She also discusses the basics of agility equipment, an agility match, agility organizations, and the best way to get started.
