Agility is a fast and fun sport for dogs and drivers. Agility came to Denmark in the mid-1980s and quickly became a very popular sport.

In this sport, you compete individually and in teams, and in all classes the dogs are divided according to size groups: small, medium and large. Competition classes are available in different degrees of difficulty from Classes I to III and there are also pure jump classes where tactile field obstacles are not included. Your dog must have at least 18 months before it should go to the competition.
Within obedience, the performance of the dog is evaluated in the various exercises. The driver should tell the dog with great help how to do it, and it requires a lot of training.

Attract the lure
Lure Coursing is first and foremost a coin sport. It is, in other words, a simulated hare hunt where a hare must imagine the hair. The "course" is usually a suitable natural area, which is more or less mountainous. The dogs are released two and two of their drivers and run behind the 'hair', which is in a barn driven by an engine.

Two judges rated the dog's speed, enthusiasm, intelligence, agility and endurance. The course is usually between 600 and 1000 meters long, and allows the dogs to stretch correctly. They can reach 60 km per hour.
Beauty contest or not? The dog show is about quality assessment, where the judges will judge a breeding result.
