Back to Agility
Brenda Johnston started agility way back in 1986 and reached the dizzy
heights of Olympia two years later. Unfortunately she had to give up the sport
she loved due to family and health reasons. Well, she's coming back now. Find
out what she thinks of agility today.
Sometimes humour arises out of adversity or as we are experiencing, the bad

Appliance of Science to Dog Agility
Many people say that agility is not 'rocket science,' but in
a series of humorous mini articles, Alan
Waddington would beg to disagree. So sit back and prepare to be amused.
The Isaac Newton Dog Training Academy presents the impact of the laws of nature
on dog agility.

Even the most athletic agility dog can get
strains, sprains and painful pinched nerves.
Therefore, it's important
to spot these injuries early before significant damage is done. Chiropractor
Petra Langen-Pieters explains how to tell if your dog has a pinched nerve.

Five Second Rule
Something as innocuous as walking the dog when it is too hot can be
dangerous. On a typical summer day, the pavement can reach a temperature

is Part of Success
When Lucy Tarpey was 12 she started training her Cocker Spaniel Diesel in the
garden, using broom handles and a plastic hoop. Soon she was doing both Junior
and Standard classes, sometimes against more than 100 adults which was a bit
overwhelming for a youngster. She is now 17 years old and she has learned the
hard way that perseverance is the key.

Many thanks to Cornwall AC for sharing their delightful and very
useful guide to ring party jobs. If you are a newbie to competition or not very
confident about helping out at shows, this is one not to be missed!
For many people Longleat was - and forever will be
- their all-time favourite agility show venue. In those doing agility seemed

Still the best way to reach agility people!
You can buy and
