HAVING FUN WITH AGILITY
Margaret H. Bonham
Because it’s “just for fun,” Having Fun with Agility breaks the constrictive agility rules and allows clickers, treats, and overhandling. The author focuses on using the clicker and other positive tools, making it fun for the dog as well as the owner. The pet owner who watches Animal Planet can now play with her dog and have fun – and still get a taste of agility without the constricting obedience requirements.
Having Fun with Agility is focused on having interactive fun with your dog through learning the basics of the most popular dog sport.
• Having Fun with Agility introduces and teaches the application of clicker training, which is very popular among pet dog owners, to agility exercises.
• Having Fun with Agility does not focus on the basics of competitive agility, which many pet dog owners find extremely intimidating.
