I've recently taken up doing agility with my Labrador Saddie and decided to reach out to an expert in this field to provide us some effective tips on getting started.

Cindy has been involved with the sport of dog agility since 1990, and trained numerous dogs to compete in various levels. Here, she explains more about the sport, where and how beginners can get started in canine agility training, and ways to get involved in the competition circle. Tune in!
