Green spaces deserve dog agility

Often overlooked, and uncatered for, these large numbers of dog walkers would benefit from some fun keep fit exercises for both dogs and owners such as a dog agility course.

So why have dog agility?
Dog agility is canine competition open to all dogs. It involves guiding them over various obstacles in order to evaluate and improve their intelligence and agility.
Reap the rewards for a more harmonious life with your canine friend
It is an educational and sporting activity that improves the dog's integration into society.
The discipline demands a harmonious relationship between the dog and handler, which results in the perfect team relationship.
The course consists of the widest possible range of obstacles, and their placement on the terrain determines the degree of difficulty and speed.
So, when designing a great outdoor Dog Agility Course which pieces of apparatus make a great obstacle course? And how many?
A show standard agility course is set out in a large ring usually with a combination of around fifteen obstacles where certain equipment heights vary depending on the dogs’ size, small, medium and large (S, M, and L).
Recreational dog agility courses vary in size and number obviously dependent on space and budget!
(Please note, our dog agility courses, ranging from the purely recreational, right up to the show standard courses, are manufactured in accordance with the regulations of the International Canine Federation (Fédération Cynologique Internationale). Suitable for categories S, M and L, according to the various components.)
