World Agility Open Championships
The Team Event runs like a Pentathlon; two agility runs, two jumping runs, finished by a speed-stakes team relay. Each country selects from its pool of handlers and dogs to run 3 dogs of different heights in each of the first four runs, before selecting one dog of each height to run in the relay. But these decisions are made on the mornings of the competition having less than 15 minutes to analyse the course maps and make the best selections.
Whether it’s simply too hot or cold outside for a full walk, or your dog is recovering from an illness it’s important to keep those wonderful agile brains active and healthy. Dog brain games are a great way to occupy your dog, give them a challenge, have a good bonding moment and keep them mentally healthy. When you play brain games keep it to short little stints for maximum enjoyment, if you play for too long your dog will lose interest quickly.
