Agility

Agility is a dog sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. Dogs run off leash with no food or toys as incentives, and the handler can touch neither dog nor obstacles. Consequently the handler's controls are limited to voice, movement, and various body signals, requiring exceptional training of the animal and coordination of the handler.

In its simplest form, an agility course consists of a set of standard obstacles laid out by a judge in a design of his or her own choosing in an area of a specified size. The surface may be of grass, dirt, rubber, or special matting. Depending on the type of competition, the obstacles may be marked with numbers indicating the order in which they must be completed.

Barn Hunt


The Barn Hunt Association, LLC has created a sanctioned sport honoring the traditional role of dogs in ridding barns, homes, and properties of vermin. Barn Hunt opens this fun sport up to any dog, of any size, type, breed or mix that can fit through an 18″ wide through approximately 22″ high tunnel. In Barn Hunt, you can earn titles and placements at levels from Instinct through Master, and even Championships and beyond. Dogs must be registered with the BHA to enter sanctioned trials. The registration form can be linked to on the right or through the top menu.

Nose Work Trials & ORTs

Nose Work is based on working detection dogs and starts with getting your dog excited about finding treats or their favorite toy hidden boxes. We then expand the game outside of boxes, using entire rooms, exterior areas, vehicles and other types of containers besides boxes. Dogs learn 'hunting' skills and build their confidence and independence as you learn teamwork and skill that will help you in competition.

Rally

What is Rally Obedience? Rally Obedience is a fun and exciting team sport for pet dogs and their handlers in which teams navigate a course with numbered signs indicating different behaviors to perform, such as sit-down-sit, come, weave through cones, and send over a jump. You and your dog can participate from Puppy to Veteran level, whether disabled or well-bodied. Different from traditional obedience, in Rally you can talk to your dog and use food rewards.
