This great overview shot of the Agility Trials in Palmetto gives you a feel for what competitie agility is all about. But what you can’t see here is the camaraderie that develops between the competitors or the palpable feeling of excitement when your dog is making a jump or running.
There are lots of local dog folk on hand. . .Hera and COZ of OceanWolf Agility and Karen Holik (now a six-time member of the AKC/USA World Team) – she is running a friend’s dog – Rush, pictured above. But there are also dogs, from all over the United States who have come to Florida for this event at the Manatee Fairgrounds. If you’ve ever thought about getting involved with agility, this is event is a must – Sunday January 3rd is the last day! Call the Fairgrounds for more information 941-722-8951
