Individuals and their pets get to have fun during their dog’s agility training as it is an active sport and one that is filled with fun. It initially started with service dogs and training for police work and military as well as protection but now the agility course even if it is pleasing to the eye and brightly colored is a remnant of the exercises that are needed in encouraging tremendous working ability. We know that alarms are good, but a dog is better preferred. There some dog breeds whose instincts is to protect and guard and they have done this all through the years so you can decide whether you want a guard dog or a protection dog. Military and police work is done with guard dogs who cannot be used as pets and must be properly trained.
However in dog agility training there is no aggression because it is a different rigors aspect for working dogs. Protection, military, and police dogs should not only be trained how be aggressive and provide protection but they should be able to wade through obstacles along the way in organized chases on the field. In a normal agility course it is possible to see how obstacles, ramps, and hurdles work for the sole purpose of training.
It is emphasized that in competitive dog training that a dog is not only trained to chase bad people, instead, the handler should look out for activities that can be achieved physically when they are together through discipline and work. The hurdles that are included in the course of dog training have sports which are set to make contact with so that it is vital for the handler and for the dog to be intense and alert in concentration at the same time sustaining the course at top speed.
Often times there is a down box marked out and placed on the ground or on a raised platform so that at some point while on top speed and although the goal is to complete the course at a fast speed with no errors, the dog should readily stop once commanded by the handler and remain still for some time. Restraint of this type exhibits training, teamwork, and dedication of the dog agility training bringing the unity of the dog and man.
Most of the times hand signals can be used to help the dog on the course’s largest part, and it is possible for a well-trained dog and handler team to ably compete even if the dog handler may not be as agile as the dog. One main benefit of the dog training is even in the absence of competition pressures, handicaps or abilities, the dog handlers continue to enjoy the fun of closely working with their dogs to maintain a relationship and a great bond through working on any parts of the dogs training course.
