Objectives of Agility, according FCI
Agility is an open discipline, for any kind of dog: small or large, pure or crossbreed. A dog will have to go through the circuit in which it will have to sort out many obstacles. The objective of the test is to value the intelligence and speed of the dog. Agility is a game that favors integration in the society of members who practice it.
This discipline implicates harmony between the dog and its owner, and perfect understanding as a team. This means it is necessary for the participants to own the elemental basis of education and obedience.
