Agility is a sport in which a dog, under the guidance of a handler, runs through an obstacle course full speed, while having to perform accurately and safely on A-Frames, Dog Walks, See-Saws and a wide variety of jumps and tunnels. Each run is timed and scored with the goal of completing the course with the highest score possible. To acquire an agility title, a dog must earn three (3) qualifying scores per class level under at least two different judges. Courses differ by level of difficulty, and number and type of obstacles.
The Swissy is bred to not only possess brawn, they are also bred to be remarkably agile for their size. Swissies continue to demonstrate their prowess on the agility course with their ability to run courses clean and under time. We hope to see more and more Swissies venturing into the agility ring in the future.
Dogs earn agility titles with the American Kennel Club (AKC), Canine Performance Events (CPE), North American Dog Agility Council (NADAC) and United State Dog Agility Association (USDAA).
