Sunday July 16th 2006 - K9 Kup

(Backfilled in October 2009 due to impending closure of Geocities)

Our first agility competition! Ok, so we were just spectators, but it was really fun to watch. We watched a bunch of human-dog teams (mostly at the starter's level) do standard, jumpers, and snooker. Having no clue of the rules, I couldn't follow the snooker and didn't have the faintest idea why the crowd was awwing or oohing or why the judge was blowing the whistle. Anyway, some of the teams were spectacular on course and what they all had in common was that the dog was extremely attentive to their handler. Seems to me that if you can get and maintain your dog's focus, you have it made in agility.
