The Lighter Side of Dog Agility World Championships

This video is packed with fun and fails from the 2012 Dog Agility World Championship runs. Sometimes it is inspiring to see teams of this caliber making mistakes just to remind us we are all human. It’s ok to make mistakes with our dogs at all levels, it’s what we do with those mistakes that make us who we are. No matter how good your team gets you will never be perfect, nor should that be your goal. Your goal […]

This Dog Agility Video Screams of Teamwork

There are thousands if not millions of videos out there of handlers and their dogs running dog agility. But this one is special and I am not sure I can put my finger on it except to say this is a TEAM. You can feel the dedication and the connection between these two knowing they are working together. There is no doubt they are all in for better or worse and together they will take whatever comes to them. I […]

This 6 Year Old Junior Dog Agility Handler is Pure Talent

Wow isn’t a strong enough word to describe what you will see from this team at the Des Moines AKC Dog agility trial. Amazing handling by this young and very talented young lady not only gets her dog Punkin through the course, it earns them a double Q! We all know how difficult it is just to get a clean run, let alone a descent time making the double Q a great accomplishment. I really love the third run when […]

How to Treat a Pad Injury on Your Agility Dog

There are so many ways our dogs can get hurt during practice or competition on or around dog agility equipment. We try our best to make it as safe as possible for our dogs, but sometimes they hit something just right and break a toe. They can also cut themselves while we are out on a “exercise” run through the park or open fields. So what should you do if you find your dog bleeding or limping with a swollen […]

Mini-Dachshund Frankie Running National TDAA

What a great example of a competitive TDAA course as run by Frankie at the Teacup Dog Agility Association Nationals. Frankie has something to say while running this perfect sized Petite Prix Snookers course with appropriate sized obstacles. While there are some differences in general rules for TDAA courses, course runs are pretty much the same. I love the way Frankie controls the teeter and what a difference TDAA equipment makes for these small dogs. Some small dogs have a […]

Discover How Your Dog Drinks

Wow! I knew they “scooped” the water with their tongue but had no idea it was the backside they used. This is a short but amazing ultra slow motion of a Alsatian dog (aka GSD) drinking water from a clear bowl. It give you a clear picture of exactly how the dog gets water into their mouth. It also explains why they take so long getting a drink when they are thirsty. It also makes me wonder how hard it […]

    Lane Crushes the Individual Large at The 2013 FCI Dog Agility WC

    Love the handling on these winning runs by Helmut Paulik of Austria and his Border Collie Lane. It is valuable to note that even while this run is smooth and flawless, that Lane still has a few things to say. Many agility enthusiasts get hung up on dogs barking on course, thinking it is an embarrassment and sign of poor training. I doubt that Helmut is a bit embarrassed and I would dare you to say his dog is not […]

    Fran is Flaming Hot at The 2013 FCI Dog Agility WC

    You will have no problem identifying David Molina and his dog Fran from Spain at any competition. Fran is always sporting a colorful “mane” that will allow you to spot them from afar. This video is of their two runs that won them the individual gold in the medium dog category. A smooth run that looks well rehearsed and definitely well thought out as they glide around the course like dancers. There was a close call at the last jumps […]

    Great First Time Runs for This Dog Agility Team

    Silje Johansen of Norway and her 3 year old Sheltie Liz do an super job at their first World Championship Competition. At the ripe old age of 18, Silje is cool and calm on course and doesn’t let the small mistakes get to her on course. Liz is confident and fast on course making this world competition look like a walk in the park as well. I know this level of competition isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but it is […]

    Star’s First Competition is Fast and Furious

    What an amazing first competition for this team as they have some mistakes but overall crush these courses. It is a bit humorous on the first run they are going really nice until the announcer reacts to an off course. I think that throws the handler’s game and concentration as they make a second mistake right after. What is particularly amazing is the table work, Star is so solid on the down stay it really allows the handler freedom to […]

    Did You Know the Easter Bunny Does Agility?

    Don’t believe me?  Then watch for yourself as you will see the latest trend in being an Easter bunny. Many Easter Bunnies are tired of being chased after by mean dogs and runny nosed kids so they started a new fad. The Easter Bunny Hustle as demonstrated by this bunny from Vancouver, British Columbia is safe and a great way for all bunnies to keep in shape during the Easter season. The craze was started several years back when a […]

    Now This is Easter Dog Agility Style

    I finally found someone that really knows how to have fun with dog agility on Easter! That’s right, Ziva got to run with not after the Easter Bunny at this fun Easter dog agility event. And though Ziva got confused at the beginning she sure poured on the speed! I am not so sure my dog wouldn’t have turned on the rabbit for some good ole Fox N Hound running. Great run and great fun and great sportsmanship by this […]

    Atomic Folly is One FAST Dog on the Dog Agility Field

    Man these Groenendaels are some fast dogs, putting the Border Collie in competition for the speed award! Pascal Mauroux and his dog Atomic Folly do a super job on these dog agility courses at the FMBB 2013. I am pretty sure I would not be able to keep their pace for much more than two obstacles. Atomic is like the energizer bunny on Redbull!  He doesn’t just keep going, he keeps going FAST! I can only imagine the amount of […]

    Watson the Pomeranian Working on Teacup Agility

    Watson is doing an awesome job at this TDAA Seminar even though they are running in the dark. It is so much fun to see the pint sized dogs on pint sized equipment giving them a level playing field. And while there are phenomenal small dogs working on the full sized equipment, it poses a real challenge for them. With the right sized equipment these little guys can have the same advantages as the big dogs on big equipment. One […]

He also earns three 3rds at the show proving he has want it takes to excel in dog agility.

    Side by Side Dog Agility Video of Amazing Groenendaels

    Really neat video side-by-side comparison of Atomic and Adrenaline running the same course with the same handler. First off you will see that these two dogs are aptly named as they both have amazing speed on course. Secondly, you see how important it is to know your dog’s strengths and weakness and how it affects your runs. Early on it looks as though the dog in the bottom video is going to be faster as the top run uses long […]
