    You have to teach them the command “target” first.

  4. schleichadventures21 says:

  11. agileagility says:

  12. How old are u?

  13. experimentsmandj says:


  14. cool

  15. Xdancer2563 says:

    Well ofcourse they did. They were showing you what it looks like trained and slowly

  16. AgilityMalamute says:

    This dog is a national level competitor She was in the USDAA Steeplechase finals last fall One of the MOST competitive agility trials in the world. In order to train a high level dog the game of agility HAS TO BE FUN. By using great motivators like food and toys the dog and the handler will enjoy agility together and eventually they become a tight team that plays just because they’ve learned how much fun the game is together, agility then becomes self-reinforcing.

    i think you guys just hire TRAINED dogs. my dog is sooo untrained

  18. heartforagility says:

    no, the dog IS trained, as a present agility trainer now, i have trained for 3 years and it is defiantly not that simply, if you claim that is all you have to do you try it. there are many obstacles that you HAVE to overcome as they are not just everyday things you come in contact with

  19. lollypopen123 says:

    me and my dog did that but took a break but now we might go back and do compititions!

  20. mightymikaagility says:


  21. look at the dog…it constantly watches the hand that offers food. The dog isn’t ‘trained’ it’s just doing whatever it has to to get a snack.

  22. nice when u say target he stops mines stops when u say stop

  23. CrazycatExtreme says:

    good vid, my dog needs to work on his contacts, the first agility school we went to worked with targets, the school we’re at now works with “wait”, when I practice on my own, I choose to use a target and clicker.
