Agility for Rescued Dogs
The 3 leged dog is super cute to!
04:02 such a cute dog and so FAST
i mean 3rd group
does anyone know or have an estimate of how old the girl is in the 1st group and she had woody and she was the first person to go. Anyone know because she looked pretty young?
Must’ve been a unique thing; the Greys I saw run Agility were amazing. However, they were shorter than most greyhounds seen on the track. They are long, but agile fellows
yeah lots of people might like watching it cause it is very fun to watch and amusing when the dog does something kinda funny… and dressage isnt that enjoyable either i mean you just sit there and watch horses do these difficult patterns i mean whats the fun in that
actually all of their dogs are good except the grey hound because of that their the fastest running dogs in the world, their long stride will have a problem in agility
a bordie collie and australian sheperd are the 2 fastest dogs in agility
wow she was just asking, dont need to yell at her for doing a suggestion. But i do COMPLETELY agree that agility should be a olympic sport cause if people can go with their pet horses than why shouldnt they go with their dogs
its called dressage
@BlackMist301 *Dressage*. It’s not just skipping around. Even as a barrel racer I see that. But yes, dog agility should be an Olympic sport.
Would you like to scan your own pups? Do you have an interest in ultrasound? VDTS provide training and machines for vets and breeders throughout the UK. Ultrasound scans are a great way to stand out in the competitive world of breeding and also secure deposits from potential buyers. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
dressage actually, its much harder than it looks. I ride horses and tried my hand at it once. It takes skill….I failed. All the riders out there, if you do dressage, you got skills!
It’s called dressage, and it’s quite a bit more difficult than agility (from my own experience of doing/seeing both, at least). Not that agility isn’t a great sport or anything, of course! Dressage is definitely more physically demanding, though.
I COMPLETELY Agree!
I do take it to heart, otherwise I wouldn’t have bothered to expend my time and effort creating a response to someone I expect not to appreciate my comments. I never intended to get /your/ panties in a bunch, and so pointed my intentions out— the rest is up to you, and interestingly enough, you take a predatory stance through sheer blunt diction. I don’t see how having quite so a clipped tone betters the community; enlighten me reasonably, if I truly am at fault, I want to know more.
its so annoying when ppl send u comments like that i totally agree….
horse drassage and i totally agree but its alot harder then dog agility i am a competitor in dog agility as well as riding its alot harder to teach a horse drassage as well as agility but horses are much smarter there much smarter then dogs witch makes them harder to train they know more tricks then dogs if they ever didnt want to be trained they would pull tricks and teaching them signals is 100x harder then teaching a dog offleash dogs no where to go horses u just have to wing it
I’m sort of amused here. It looks like you really got all the horse people’s panties in a bunch.
Next time you feel that you have to say “I don’t mean to be a jerk” perhaps you might consider editing your thoughts before you write something to someone. I agree, as a community we should perhaps better ourselves. It seems you need to take that to heart.
Herding dogs are good, like the Border Collie, Belgian Malinois. Australian shepherds, Koolies, and Greyhounds can be good. As long as you find an athletic, sharp-eyed, agile dog, you should be good to go. Any dog of healthy body and can achieve a reliable level of obedience, will run the course with you. High-energy (not to be confused with excitable/anxious) dogs are usually the best at Agility.
If you were trying to boost canine Agility as an olympic sport or otherwise support the claim that horseback riding is not a sport, you didn’t do a good job at all of persuasion or elaboration further than what anyone had offered here. If you were putting your opinion up just to have one, overlooking all the other details, then you did okay. Just in the future, make that a little more clear for us all. I don’t mean to be a jerk. As a community, let’s better ourselves
I have been doing agility for a year now and My German Shepherd is getting better, but there are many things she still needs to learn and get better at. All dogs can take part in agility, you just have to be one with your dog, like border collies for instance are really fast and smart, they need to constantly have something to do or they can be destructive. Depeinding on the dog you want, research that dog and see if it’s a match for you.
I think agility should be in the Olympics, and I do agree that not all sports are alike, each sport includes different levels of learning and can take many years to master.
The dogs in agility are also the human’s partner. Not every sport is at the same “intensity.” Not all sports are alike.
You mean Dressage? Let me tell you that Dressage is EXTREMELY challenging. There’s at least 100 signals being transmitted to that horse at every second and those horses are over 12-15 years old for a reason. It takes years of training to perfect those movements. I’ve been riding for 7 years and can’t do hardly any of that stuff. Just because you favor a different sport doesn’t mean you can bash another one. Oh, by the way, it’s not ‘skipping’ it’s called tempi changes or passage/piaffe.
Loved this vidio, nearly made me cry. Is there anyone here who can help me to choose a dog inorder to take part in agility?
Dogs are so amazing! what they can do is purely a gift!
that mini-shyh-tzu..is just like mine she’s 22 and missing an eye , and just as active..just i broke my back i can’t run, but i bet she’d love that!!
ty for posting this!!
The Olympics are for people. The horse is the person’s partner, physically, like a canoe team. My Lord almighty it is not “just skipping”. The horses in those competitions are over 15 years old because it took ten years to develop those maneuvers. Think advanced yoga or hardcore dancing, but with an unpredictable animal over a thousand pounds balancing a person on the back. Sorry. I compete in Agility with my dog, love it, I also do Dressage for horses and it is MUCH more intense.
Do you mean dressage? Haha you make it sound like it’s easy. They don’t do dog agility in the Olympics because the cultural veiw on dogs differs ALOT, and frankly, very few people would enjoy watching this for hours.
4:15 = eat less cheeseburgers and show me where to go!
