 ❤️❤️❤️❤️ these little agility dogs!  I'm watching and yelling "good boy" and poor Toby wakes up from his nap  and comes running as if I'm talking to him...the non-sporting dog that he is. 😂😂😂😂😂

Re: Westminster Agility Show

I loved "Plop"   reminded me of plop plop fizz fizz what a relief it is.

 

Some of those handlers were actually the problem, they couldn't keep up with the dog or they got confused, thus the dog was confused.

@SurferWife   My Jack Russell, Snickers was sleeping as I was cheering the dogs on. She looked at me and I told her dogs were on TV. She went to the door.

  My older Jack Russell understood TV and watched it.

   I picked Snickers up and showed her the dog running. When I put her down she sat and watched awhile and went to the door. 
   Jack Russells usually aren't in agility because of their short concentration span. 
   I did feel sorry for the owner who fell and his dog came to help and kept kissing him. He almost fell on the dog.

 It was a hard course.

I felt sorry for the guy who fell down and ruined his dog's chances.

There are lots of Jack Russell, all terriers, in agility.  I have seen just about every breed run ( think Bassett hounds or bull dogs) There were many at Westminster, just didn't make the televised finals.  It is just a game for most.....all dogs love games.

Having been in that position (not a televised competition, rather a local trial), the dog doesn't care he was having fun playing the game.  Yet every handler has taken a tumble at some point.
