Why do you do it?

Someone asked me why I do agility.  I thought about it, and this is what I came up with:

What keeps me coming back is the feeling of accomplishment and emotional connection and the start and finish line of a course.

Looking down after running and realizing that this dog isn't doing this for herself, she's doing it for me.

Bentley's First Trial


  1. I remember an agility friend told me the same thing too! Her shelties are running and doing their best for her and that made her keep going back to the agility field.

    I think it's just great that your doggies are doing all these for you!

  2. I think it is pretty clear why you do it. You and the dog enjoy it.

  3. How true, Ashley! I cried whenever we got our first ribbon. So much fun!

  4. Awesome answer!!!! I like the feeling of going out to train. My dog barking and jumping so excited to be working. I love seeing dogs run too.
