This Basset Flies Through Dog Agility

Cheryl Strelbicki-Cieslinski is a well deserved proud handler of the fastest Basset we have ever seen in dog agility. You may think, “Yeah, how fast could a Basset be, really?” If so, then sit back and get blown away. Xena starts in high gear and doesn’t shut down even for a second, well except for the table. Seriously, check out that a-frame performance! Xena flies over the apex every bit as graceful as any Border Collie! And when you see […]

Sudden Onset Zoomies Tibetan Terrier Style

Cassie is a riot as SOZ sets in and she takes off around the agility field full of joy, enthusiasm and speed. Love the presentation on the top of the A-frame as Cassie to show off or to scope the grounds for Pop, not real sure at that point which it is. Cassie then checks back in with Mom after her gallivant with a glean in her eye, ready to take off again if the need presses. At the end […]

This Newfoundland Rocks Dog Agility With a QQ

We have seen some HUGE Newfoundlands lumbering around agility courses, but not this big girl. Though she is not as “hefty” as some, she has HUGE presence when she runs spilling joy and enthusiasm as she goes. Her handler, Anna, has done a stellar job with her training and distance work as she glides through the weaves. Rory, at the time of this video, was the #1 agility Newfoundland and with this QQ she and secured their spot at the […]

Squish The Dog Agility Pocket Rocket

I think we have a new favorite Chihuahua competing in dog agility and his name is Squish. And don’t be confused by the name, he is the one squishing the competition with runs like this one. During the NADAC trial by Act-Up Agility Squish makes another stunning run on this Elite Jumpers course. Love how Squish cheats his start line stay, because Laurie really does need a lead out with this pocket rocket! We would love to see an overlay […]

Argentinean Mastiff Soars in Dog Agility

This is a serious chunk of dog flesh! Boga Terra Del Fuego competing at the 2013 Prix De France Agility is a dog to take seriously. This Argentinean Mastiff knows his way around the dog agility field and his handler does a great job with him. I am not sure what would make you try dog agility with a mastiff, but I am thrilled that Jerome Scherrer did! What fun to watch this team not only get through a course […]

Agility Bloopers Croatian Sheepdog Style

Normally an Agility Bloopers Real this long has several dog and handler bloopers, but Grom does it all. It takes a load of humility as a handler to put a video together of all your own mistakes and then share it. But it also gives tons back to others who watch it so they can see they are not the only ones out there making mistakes. Grom is a super fast and talented agility dog with great distance work that […]

    Jill Basset Gives Her Best in Dog Agility

    While enjoying great videos of some very talented Basset Hounds in dog agility we came across this one. This really shows the heart of dog agility especially at the local level, fun and lighthearted. Meet Jill Basset, not the fastest hound on course but definitely the most entertaining and creative. Sorry to say this trial secretary will not be gaining any titles soon, maybe if she had a handler? We are hoping your local clubs have this much fun when […]

    This Basset is Lightning Fast at CPE Fullhouse

    We have seen some speedy Basset Hounds, but Xena takes the cake!  You have to see this to believe it. There is no way you will ever doubt the speed and agility of this breed stereotyped as dull and lazy. In fact, Xena is well on her way to being a threat to the “faster” breeds like the Jack Russell and Sheltie. For those unfamiliar with CPE’s Full House, the goal accumulate required points before time is out. These are: […]

    Great Job By Basset Hound in Agility 1

    When this Basset Hound steps into frame it was pure handsome and I am not quite sure what it was. Maybe the coloring or just his presence, but this dog commands the screen and the course. He does a great job on this course with some pretty high jumps for those short legs and long body. He has a bit of a protest at the wall jump, but comes back around and completes it to finish the course. Love the […]

    BobbiJo is the Fastest Basset Hound Ever!

    You know it is hard to any kind of scent hound in dog agility for the very reason there is so much to smell. But being a Basset Hound is even harder because, darn it, the smells are literally right under their nose. Couple that with running in a horse arena and the distractions are just cruel to these awesome trackers. Maybe all the smells are what cause BobbiJo to just explode with joy and take off in a case […]

    Diesel the Basset Hound Earns His CS-ATCH!

    What a great video of a super team that has obviously defied all stereotypes that befall the Basset Hound. Diesel Gustav Rags to Ribbons earns his CPE CS-ATCH title in great style with a solid performance. Love how he starts the run with a prolonged back scratch as if he knows all eyes are on this run. He has such great energy and never takes his attention off his handler with tail up and wagging. It is as if he […]

    Pamela Dennison Tips for the Whistle Recall

    This is a great video on getting your dog conditioned to the whistle with some important tips on treats. This is one time you do not want to skimp on the kind and amount of treats that you use. Use only treats that your dog goes bonkers for like real chicken, beef, liver or cheese. Then like Pamela says, give them jackpot rewards for their response to the whistle. It is like putting money in the bank, when you need […]

  • Teaching Your Dog The Whistle Recall

    Teaching Your Dog The Whistle Recall

    We have seen lots of ways to keep your recall training fun and rewarding for your dog using positive reinforcement. Some have voiced concern for emergency situations that maybe this training may not be “strong” enough? Well, here is a great back up plan especially if you live in heavily wooded areas or places you need a solid recall without compromising positive reinforcement training. The whistle can be a better recall for many reasons, but the main reason is it […]

    These Recall Games Beat the Socks off Choke Collars

    In dog agility a solid recall is a must especially in the beginning when your dog is under new stress. These are great games that teach your dog that returning to you is fun not the end to fun which is paramount. These are also great shadow handling exercises that will improve your dog’s focus on you as handler. Of course you would need to introduce these games in an enclosed area and with the dog alone until they become […]

    Super Tiny Miniature Pincher Loving Dog Agility

    They say this is a Min Pin, but boy is she tiny. Keep a close eye on her or you will lose her as she flies around these courses. She really has a super cute style to go with her super cute personality that makes her such fun to watch. Love the spread jump in the second run, she takes it from a standstill after debating on going at all. Watch her as she jumps for joy how she kicks […]

    Don’t Tell This Yorkie She Is Small

    Meet Nellie, a 2 1/2 year old Yorkshire Terrier at her second NADAC agility trial with her handler Wendy Watts. I do have to warn you that this team is on fire with a severe overdose of cuteness only a Yorkie can deliver. I love how Nellie shoots out the start gate like a rocket and never shows signs of slowing or tiring! By the third run she is wound up so tight she has to run some of that […]
