BRAG Agility Class Night

Dog agility is a competitive sport in which a handler directs his or her dog over a timed obstacle course. You will teach your dog to walk across boards of varying lengths and widths, jump through a tire, as well as standard jumps, weave their bodies through a series of stationary poles, and to demonstrate control by lying down on a table. They will learn to do all of this in a safe and controlled manner.

The canine agility class was held at Columbus Region Agility Group (BRAG), a Columbus based training group that focuses solely on agility. The class was an introduction to the basic obstacles like the chute, tunnel, tire, A-frame, dog walk, and table. Participants enjoyed a fun filled class while the dogs were mentally stimulated and burned off lots of energy.

The class was held at the BRAG facilities in Hilliard, OH. For more information on classes offered by BRAG please visit their website. A list of up coming events is also available on their site if you would like to see what agility is like first hand.
