I waited to buy a dog agility book until this was published, and I am glad I did. Everything about the book smacks of quality, from the gorgeous color photos to the full color layout to the little notes and tips. She carefully avoids the impersonal "it" by naming fictional dogs "Ace" and "Sierra". It is a clever invention that really does help in making the material more understandable. It is attention to details like this that make it better than some books I've browsed and declined to buy.
The book covers most aspects of the sport, from selecting a breed to giving the actual agility rules from the various governing bodies (including the UKC!). She gives instructions on how to build some backyard agility equipment; I've already built the tire jump from her plans, and it was effortless. I wish she had given plans for some of the harder equipment, like teeter boards or A-frames, but those are bigger projects requiring some thought anyways.
Her large section on handling and sequencing seems overly long... until you try it on your own. I'll swallow my pride and admit now that it is tougher than it looked. I am glad she spent a lot of space on this important information. I'll now go back and carefully read this section over again.
This is a book I won't quickly outgrow. I feel like it will be useful all the way through my first few trials, and then some. And all the while, it will look dang good on my coffee table!
I'm glad I waited for it!

I really enjoy the information in this book. It has helped me understand a LOT about AKC, USDAA & NADAC processes, equipment, etc. My only issue is that with the last revision being almost 5 years old. Several of the dog height/jump heights have changed as well as some other things. Would love to see an updated version come out because I would re-purchase!

This is a super great beginner agility book that prepares the handler from starting to advanced agility skills. It is has great lessons, pictures and descriptions and is and easy read and reference guide.
  • Gajurus
If you're interested in competing, this is a very good book to get started with and to use in conjunction with agility classes. If, like me, you just want to know more about the sport and maybe do a bit of backyard agility with your dog for fun and to give her an occupation other than chewing everything in sight, then it's really too advanced!
  • Fecage
Wow! What a comprehensive way to begin Agility Training with your dog. I was mightily impressed with how the author went about introducing the subject, and how easy it is to follow. Good illustrations also.
  • Dozilkree
