Have you ever tried to explain agility to someone who doesn't know the sport? I wrote an article on agility for the first time spectator that is good for sharing with your friends to explain the crazy sport that you and your dog are involved in. smile

Jax, remove the spaces in the link smile
Don't know why, but that happens a lot on Dogster.

Aslan, thanks for the article!
Very informative smile Just wish I had that when trying to explain agility to the SO laugh out loud.
Usually when someone asks what dog agility is, I end up stuttering..."it's um...the dog obstacle course thing? Where they um...run through tunnels? red facered face"
Because if I explain it the way I feel about it, people get the confused look and have no idea what I'm talking about.... shrug

Thanks Bruno for posting the link for me!!! I'm glad you guys like the article. Agility is hard to describe, and when I try, I always hope they've seen it on TV. Otherwise, my explanation sounds incomplete. smile

Nicely done, Aslan! Now if someone could just explain who created the weave (and why), I'd be a happy camper wink

I tell people that it is an obstacle course with tunnels and things to climb and jump over lol! I try not to get to in depth unless they really sound interested.

Great job applause

Ah thank you so much! This is a wonderful article, and I'm so glad I found it now instead of in a few months when we start doing our first agility classes! :] I'll be using this more than once.
