With a couple of our dogs we practice agility.
Chulo through the tire
Agility is a sport with all kind of jumps and hurdles .
The dog has to take the different
obstacles in a certain order.
The handler had to make sure the dog takes the right obstacle.

There are different kind of jumps;
The tire, the normal jump, the wall and the long jump.
The broom and the normal jump
There are the different dog agility"contacts", like the de dogwalk, the A-frame and the See saw.
Then there is the table, where the dog has to jump on and wait for a couple of seconds.
The groundequipment like the tunnel and
the soft-tunnel are frequently loved by the dogs.
They have to run through those obstacles.
At last we have the weaves.
Most dogs find them difficult to learn, but when they now how to take them, they go spectaculair through the weaves !!
