Agility equipment for training your dog at home.

Outward Hound Outdoor Agility Starter Kit

If you think you want to start training your dog in Agility, there is no better way to start than in your own backyard!  It is a simple and fun way to connect with your dog.

When I first got Azaan, a Boerboel (aka South African Mastiff), I was trying to teach her obedience so that we could compete in rally and obedience trials.  She would get bored, and often lose focus.  That’s when I decided to enroll her in some agility classes to try to bring the fun back into learning, focusing on the handler, and following my direction.  It worked!  While she absolutely hated practicing obedience routines, her eyes lit up when we practiced agility.  The agility training translated well into obedience competition, and she and I have earned some titles and plan to compete and earn more!
