Dog agility- Demonstrates a dog’s ability to be agile, versatile and quick. Any person with any breed of dog can participate in dog agility. All you need is a positive attitude, commitment, teamwork, and proper training for both dog and human handler. It is a great way to exercise while building a strong bond between you and your pet. The benefits of agility are unlimited for dogs and people of all ages and backgrounds.
An agility course consists of different obstacles that the dog must maneuver around, over, and through as directed by its handler.Instead of forcing a dog to complete an obstacle, rewards and praise are used to encourage the desired behaviour. This teaches dogs self-confidence because they learn to “overcome those obstacles” on their own. Its greatest value is in building a strong human-animal bond and giving you and your dog something new, active, challenging, and fun to do together.
Dog Agility awareness program is being conducted at Pune in Aundh by Neeta Godambe a certified dog trainer and behaviourist of “Its Pawssible”
