I found this to be a comprehensive yet down to earth guide to the sport of Agility. It breaks down each exercise into steps that anyone can master with their dog. It is written in such a way that even newcomers to the sport can enjoy Agility. For anyone interested in this sport, this book is a must read. Included are plans to make some of the obstacles. Wonderful book.

I read this book as I was trying to find ways to keep my Rottweilers busy. The book outlines what agility is, how to train, even how to build equipment.

I have been to my first competition, and have a yardful of agility equipment built from the back of this book on which my friends and I practice.

Ms. Simmons-Moake is easy to read. She is enthusiastic in her book and in person. I highly recomend this book especially to the beginner as they will get the nuts and bolts of agility.

I used this book to start training my first agility dog. We trained on our own for a year and have a wall full of ribbons to show for it. The equipment section is a nice touch. I now have 3 dogs in agility to say it's addicting is an understatement(!) and this book helps to feed the need.

This was a great book. I bught for my dog to give him something to do. He was so smart and it seemed a waste brain power not to teach something challenging. This book is easy to understand and even tells how to build ALL of the equipment. You HAVE to buy this book if you want to train agility. It's great.

Format: Hardcover
More information than I thought possible in a book. This book offers step by step training methods, a logical order of training behaviors, and lots of resources for equipment, build your own or to purchace. Some of the information is a bit "dated"
