Canine Agility challenge

At this year’s Canine Agility challenge expect to see incredible dogs and their skilled trainers performing at the top of their game. This phenomenal show is proudly sponsored by BAYOPET.

This sport is great fun to take part in, but does require a fit dog and handler. The sport is open to all breeds of dogs and crossbreeds and dogs of any size can participate in the various sized categories. It focuses on the handler’s ability to control and direct their dog accurately over a series of obstacles as quickly as possible. Competitions are run against the clock and points are deducted for failing to complete the course in the set time as well as for failing to complete the course accurately. Agility has become a very popular sport not only in South Africa but Internationally. The sport was introduced into South Africa in May 1998.
