How agile is your Border Collie? Well, let me put it this way, in England, the Border
Collies are occasionally given competitions separate from other competitions with
mixed breeds. That’s how agile a Border Collie is, the dog is top of the list when it
comes down to agility!

The agility event for dogs is a sport in which Border Collies dominate on, for they are
the most energetic species of dog. The sport consists of trials and obstacles that are
set by the judges of the said sports. Each event has a time in which it needs to be
accomplished, and points are added and deducted for completing in the best time,
and not finishing with the time limit, respectively.

Your Border Collie has the speed and the motivation to do well in these events, and
this is considered to be an asset and also a disadvantage. The dog may decide he
wants to do a specific obstacle first, and try and go around the trial in the incorrect
way and suchlike. To cope with this, it is the handlers responsibility to teach the dog
to recognize the names of the trials and obstacles, and he or she must be ready to
give the name of the next section of the event, when the dog is close to completing
the current section that he or she may be in. To succeed in these competitions, it isn’t
just down to the dog to be great, the handlers must know the timing and when to give
the next command an so on.

Unlike other dog breeds, the Border Collie can work faster if the handler is at a
distance and not by its side. The Border Collie is a herding breed and needs little
assistance from his handler in accomplishing the obstacles given to him. A dog is
faster than a human, and if the handler is by his side, he may just slow the dog down.
As long as your Border Collie can follow certain commands such as stop, go, around
and so forth, he will do well in the event. You need to teach a Collie to anticipate
before you even teach him what he is meant to be anticipating! This means training
him to do something by command and not just by pure instinct. You have to be bale to
move and think faster than the movements of your over excited Border Collie.

In an agility obstacle course, the Border Collie is the most cheered for its speed,
grace and sheer athletic ability. They may not be the most accurate, because of their
hyper characteristics and may be beaten by a slower dog because of an incomplete
task or an un-sequential task but as I’ve mentioned, they are the most cheered at and
if the handler is good than the Border Collie will dominate this sport.

Now, lets get to another sport that a Border Collie does well in. It is the relatively new
sport of fly ball. This sport is a test of true agility and speed and again, most dogs that
enter this competition are Border Collies, for it is the perfect dog for a perfect speed
and agility game!
