Dixie the Chihuahua Earning Her UACH Title

Dixie is one happy little Chihuahua on course in this video earning her UKC United Agility Champion title. If that wasn’t enough, she course through these fun and challenging UKC obstacles and pulls a perfect 200. And how about those obstacles?  They have a flower box jump, hoop tunnel, pause box, swing plank and sway bridge. If you will notice there is also a distance line around the weaves and most likely around the pause box. This adds significant difficulty […]

Ron Heller and Danni Are Dog Agility Poetry in Motion

For anyone actively involved in the AKC Agility competitions, Ron Heller and his beautiful black Lab need no intro. These two are beyond amazing to watch on the course and are the living definition of teamwork. Some claim that dog agility requires speed and agility from dog and handler, Ron and Danni crush that notion. While some have the luxury of deciding whether or not practice distance handling this team had no choice. Instead they became the poster child for […]

NADAC Hoopers is Great Fun for Dog and Spectators

This is an amazing example of NADAC hoopers and a course that is both fun as well as challenging. It isn’t some handlers cup of tea as they like to be with their dog around the course which is increasingly necessary on normal agility courses. But with these distance games the dog doesn’t need help in collection, wraps and contact control. What they do need is phenomenal distance work and constant connection to the handler to be able to complete […]

It’s Not An Illusion, Mya Really Is That Fast in Dog Agility

When the video starts of Amanda & Mya’s run, midway through the first weaves I thought they put it on fast forward. But that isn’t the case whatsoever, this team is just plain fast and furious at this DPCA National/Regional Specialty. It really is hard to believe that this is first national competition as they walk away with 3 firsts and 1 second place. Amanda Albretsen has done a fabulous job of getting Mya ready for this competition and their […]

How Dogs and Cats Teach Youngsters

Oh, My, Goodness, this is the cutest video every of a Golden Retriever helping a puppy learn to negotiate the steps. You can’t help but start coaxing the puppy as well and then being so happy when he starts to get the idea. And then there is the cat.  What more can I say, but, “Yup, that is the way it goes!” If you have owned both, you know there is a definite difference on how their minds work. Be […]

This Dog Agility Steeplechase is Super Smooth and Fast

This is a super steeplechase run at the USDAA Regionals by this team that earned them a well deserved first place. Love the way the handler keeps her dog in high gear by keeping in front of her super fast dog as much as possible. When she is able to do it, you can see the dog literally power out of the landings in efforts to catch up. Catching up is no problem for the dog, proving the great handling […]

    If One Wasn’t Enough, The Double Blind Cross

    This maneuver as demonstrated beautifully by Emelie Magnusson and her talented Border Collie Yim is not for the fainthearted. As if a single blind cross isn’t hard enough for many of us to master with our dogs, Emelie makes the double look like child’s play. What is so awesome about her video is that she also includes the “misses” so you can see it really is in the timing. Knowing the talent and perfection of this team you know that […]

    Visual Definition of The Dog Agility Blind Cross

    For those of you learning all the different types of crosses, wraps other handling techniques, this is a super video. It shows in a simple yet concise way what the challenging Blind Cross in dog agility looks like in action. In short the Blind Cross is when the dog changes handler’s sides behind their back and the handler loses sight of the dog. Not a crowd pleaser for many beginner handlers as it takes a lot of trust in your […]

    Coda Might Be New To Trialing But An Ace in Dog Agility

    This may be Coda’s first trial, but look at the handle they have on the Novice A Standard and Jumpers course. In fact, this newbie walked away with a well deserved first and second place and Q’s on both runs! I think it is safe to say that his handler was mighty proud of this first time performance by Coda. There was a moment of brief confusion on the teeter as you will see Coda looking to the sides ready […]

    These UKC Agility All Stars Are Loving Dog Agility

    Here is another great example of not only the different obstacles you may encounter at a UKC trial but also the different breeds and speeds of teams that participate as well. Along with jumps, dog walk and tunnel, this course also sports the sway bridge, hoop tunnel and plank jump which adds it’s own level of difficulty. You can see the look of annoyance on some of the faster dogs as they step over the jump rather than jump it […]

    Border Collie Loving This Level 2 UKC Agility Course

    This 12 year old Border Collie runs like a pro the first time over a bridge or plank on this UKC level 2 round 1 course. They have a little hang up on the pause box and from our angle it is hard to see exactly what happens. However, I do know the handler cannot enter the box taped off on the ground to help her dog into position. And just like the table, the position the dog takes once […]

    Dixie Earning Her Third Leg for UKC Agility II Title

    Dixie, a beautiful Spaniel, is clearly loving the game of dog agility UKC style as she works toward her Agility II title. The UKC tends to be even more laid back than the AKC allowing for teams to really have fun at competitions. These courses are not a technical as some AKC course, but look at all the great obstacles these dogs must master. You have pipe jumps, swing plank, hoop tunnel, window jump, pause box with distance lines, and […]

    This Kelpie Flies Through Weave Pole Training with Channel Method

    Sap is demonstrating how teaching the weave poles with the channel method allows him to have tremendous drive. You would start with the poles further apart to start, this shows the final few inches of the learning process. Many trainers will use both the channel method combined with other methods such as the angled weaves. These two methods allow the dog to develop muscle memory for the weaving action on a full set of weave poles. They also keep the […]

    Bridging the Gap to a Deaf Dog’s World

    This beautiful dog’s complete story is not really known and we aren’t told how this training facility got him. What is so very sad is they had no idea the dog was deaf and why he was so distracted and not willing to focus. They found out he was deaf.  It wasn’t that he was ignoring their teaching, it was that he could not hear them. Now, here is the issue – this group uses an ecollar and that is […]
