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 […]

The Key to Success in Dog Agility

Emelie and her first agility dog have one of the most beautiful dog agility stories that we have ever heard. When it would have been tons easier to give up, throw in the towel and write off her dog’s issues as incurable, she persevered. She knew something her dog didn’t know just yet, that she was a star and a champion behind all that fear. This video does such a wonderful job of telling her story as well as inspiring […]

    This Groenendael Has Wings

    The speed on this dog is simply amazing as you will see it fly around these courses with ease. It is all his handler can do to keep up with this super fast ground speed but she does and has great handling skills. There can be a price to be paid when a dog is lightning fast on course and provides plenty of challenge for handlers. He is almost too fast coming over the A-frame in the second run jumping […]

    Guarana the Boston Terrier Winning Dog Agility Run

Rocio Nadal handling the Boston Terrier, Guarana, are smoking at the Sao Paulo State (Brazil) Championship. Guarana has super running contacts and really handles the teeter nicely displaying all the hard work this team has done. The Boston Terrier seems like a shoe-in for agility with their long legs, stamina and speed like Guarana. Being […]

    This Old English Sheepdog Loves Dog Agility and it Shows

    The Old English Sheepdog is such a neat dog and of course, is synonymous with the Disney movie, “The Shaggy Dog.” Karen and her dog Breaker are doing a great job moving around this course, but Breaker’s hair keeps knocking poles. I guess this is why many competitors clip their sheepdogs coupled with the fact this is hot work in the summer. Breaker is having a great time anyway and you can see the smile through all that hair as […]

    Boston Terrier, Duna, Rocking Dog Agility for the Win

    Duna and his handler do an amazing job on these dog agility courses making it easy to see why they got the first place. Clean and fast, Duna takes every obstacle with determination and confidence attesting to the hours of practice they put in. It is also fun to watch Duna run with his tail end tucked up and ready to kick it into overdrive when needed. Duna also takes the teeter with confidence and control with an aggressive “toes […]

  • Does Your Agility Dog Get Excited at W-A-L-K?

    Does Your Agility Dog Get Excited at W-A-L-K?

    Every dog has it’s own triggers for getting excited and all have their own styles of showing their joy that makes you smile. Most of the time that excitement centers around what is most important to our dogs, food and exercise. The third center often brings the biggest joy and sometimes tears; that of their joy upon our return home. Some dogs get so amped up over some events they have even learned how to spell to spite our efforts […]

    French Bulldog Pup Doesn’t Want to go to Sleep

    We all have those times when we just want to stay up for five more minutes even though we are “dog” tired. This adorable Frenchie has a lot to say in his squeaky little voice about hitting the hay at bedtime. What is funnier than that is how fast he actually falls asleep when told to close his eyes. I am sure you have experienced this before if you have kids, but I have never seen such a cute puppy […]

  • A Bad Case of the Zoomies Takes Another Dog Agility Team

    A Bad Case of the Zoomies Takes Another Dog Agility Team

    Some cases of the zoomies are not fatal and are even easily treated, but other cases cause an end to an otherwise great run. And I am not sure if the early onset zoomies are better then the mid run crisis, but Rookie seems to fall victim to the former. And who can blame this adorable 18 month old Pomeranian who is a fully charged keg of enthusiasm? Sometimes you just feel so happy you have to run with wild […]

    Pomeranian Votes for a New Dog Agility Obstacle, Puddle Jumping

    Many of us would cringe at running our dogs in these conditions and I am sure many of your dogs would flat out refuse. However, in some areas there just isn’t really an option if you want to run dog agility, it’s just part of the game. Casey thinks it’s just peachy to run in foul weather and even makes a point of running through all the puddles. I must admit that I wouldn’t expect this kind of a reaction […]

    Aska the Alaskan Malamute Enjoying Dog Agility

    This Alaskan Malamute is HUGE!  It is a little scary watching the approach to the dog walk as it looks like Aska might not fit. Aska might not be the fastest dog on course this day, but you can see the joy Aska has for running dog agility. Malamutes are not known for their ease of training and it is comical when Aska hits the weaves wrong. Aska just stands there bewildered then gives the handler a rash when she […]

    Gorgeous Gamblers Championship Run

    Kathy Mazzola and her BC, Gorgeous, are so fluid on this Gamblers course it seems they practiced this run at home. I didn’t see the dog walk position and was surprised when Gorgeous came out of the tunnel and started climbing up. Some fancy foot work for an amazing cross takes them into to Gamblers portion where things get hairy. Gorgeous doesn’t see the weaves and Kathy is running out of breath and knows she only has a couple shouts […]

    Amazing Journey of Duncan to Gamblers Champion Platinum

    This is a super neat video not only in the fact that it follows this team’s journey to Gamblers Champion Platinum. It also shows the wide variety of Gamblers courses that could be found at a dog agility trial. This team is so connected in their distance work and Duncan is all in when it comes to taking direction. This speaks volumes of the dedication and time put into his training as terriers can be difficult to teach. Duncan is […]
