Dogs that have been patiently trained by their masters usually obtain a higher degree of physical well-being, and skills that far outreach any dogs potential. However few owners even dare to try training their dogs due to busy work schedules and demanding personal or family lifestyles. Training your dog to be alert, mentally alive and physically strong is not easy for it requires patience and care.

Preparation for Dog Agility Training

Dog nimbleness training or agility training is not something you easily undertake in your home or in your garage. Like any other forms of physical training, your dog should be well versed in manners especially when around other dogs. Distraction is a very real part of a dog?s life. Obedience classes often help ease a dog?s social awkwardness; it trains and teaches him what to do and how to behave around other humans and other dogs.

Contact Obstacle

After finishing obedience school, you and your dog are now ready to start your agility training. The first lesson introduces your dog and you to the basic commands that you will use later. The training begins with the Contact obstacle. This obstacle showcases the A-frame that is made of two platforms usually about 1 m wide by 3 m long connected together and elevated so that the connected part is about as high as a man. The objective of this exercise is to test and train the dog?s climbing skills on sloped areas.

Dogwalk

The next one is the Dogwalk, this is made out of three 3 to four meter long planks that are connected end to end. Like the A-frame, this is elevated to a man?s shoulder height so that two planks become the uphill and downhill planks that lead to and from a center plank. This obstacle trains your dog?s running and walking abilities.
