“If you think dogs can’t count, try putting three dog biscuits in your pocket and then give him only two of them” – Phil Pastoret
Agility competition is a timed obstacle course that you do with your Dog. Brittanys are smart, agile, speedy, and eager to please – which means that Brittanys can be very successful in the Agility ring. (Brittanys Online has a nice section about Agility with Brittanys)
TCBC members in the Houston area are very fortunate; because we have an abundance of outstanding Agility trainers, Agility clubs, and facilities for Agility training. Plus, there are many AKC Agility Trials here throughout the year!
TCBC held our very first Agility Trial May 9-11, 2014. We ran Standard, JWW, and T2B courses on all three days, and our exceptional judges were Victoria MacVicar and Jerry Marotta. The “High in Trial Brittany” award went to TCBC member Jim Bryson!
The Brittany Agility Trophy stayed in Houston until the winner of the ABC 2014 Summer Specialty Agility Trial in Oklahoma City took it!
TCBC has subsequently held Agility Trials several times each year, under our own AKC permit. You are welcome to stop by the trial, and see what our amazing dogs are doing!
