Dog Agility Trials In Lufkin
Agility is a dog sport in which a handler and dog team work together, as the dog executes a series of obstacles such as jumps, tunnels, weave poles, see-saws, dog walks and A- frames. All types and sizes of dogs compete in this sport. Dog agility is a sport that has exploded in popularity since the late 1970s.
The agility trial is free for the public to watch and begins at 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, continuing through mid-afternoon. Bleachers will be set up for seating and concessions will be available. Information on agility and agility lessons will also be available for those who are interested. Register to win a free beginners agility seven-week course. Parking is on the zoo side of the Expo Center.
A Show-n-Go will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 18, as a “practice session” for agility- trained dogs.
