Agility is the fastest growing dog sport and is undoubtedly tremendous fun for both dog and handler! To get to the top takes a huge amount of time, effort and training, so where do you begin if you are thinking about taking up this fast and furious sport with your four legged friend?

In this book, Connie Sellers, grade 7 international handler who specializes in training novice competitors, shows us everything you need to know to get started in agility. Whether you are completely new to the sport, or training a young dog, Sellers provides us with 101 exercises that take us through all aspects of the sport, including;

handling points
start line waits
wing wraps

and more

This is the foundation guide to agility that you cannot be without!

Sellers begins by looking at what is agility, and the kinds of dogs and people it is best suited to, discussing what makes an ideal agility dog. In chapter two, Before you Start, Sellers takes us through choosing a reward, giving advice on finding a toy your dog likes, as well as using food treats. There is also a training tip from Greg Derrett on reward structure.

A clear comprehensive guide that provides an excellent foundation to introduce both dog and handler to the hugely exciting world of agility.
