Once your dog have been trained in the basics of agility (this can take 1-2 years) and is a minimum of 18 months old you can register with the Kennel Club and compete at fun and registered agility shows. However there is no pressure to compete at shows and you can train your dog purely for fun.
Agility competitions consist of a sequence of obstacles which the dog has to negotiate against the clock. A dog that completes the course correctly with in the course time will achieve a 'clear round'. Faults are awarded for errors just like showjumping. The winner is the quickest dog with the lowest number of faults.
Agility dogs compete against others of similar size and ability. The different classes that the dogs compete in are organised into grades dependent on the dogs ability, grade one = beginner and grade seven = championship dogs. Dogs move up the grades by winning a class or by collecting points from gaining places in classes.
Very sucessful agility dogs aspire to become an agility champion, compete at Crufts, Scottish dog of the year , Discover Dogs and Olympia.
