For those uninitiated, canine agility is a competitive sport that tests a person's skills in training and handling of dogs over a timed obstacle course. Competitors race against the clock as they direct their dogs to jump hurdles, scale ramps, burst through tunnels, balance a teeter-totter and weave through a line of poles in an obstacle course configuration designed to challenge a handler's competitive and training skills. Scoring is based on faults similar to equestrian show jumping.
