New to Agility?

Volunteer posted by the dog walk and the tunnelNew recruits are given on-site training before their shift begins. Ring crews are seated inside each of the 100’ by 100’ agility rings during the competition. They are responsible for quickly, silently and unobtrusively adjusting the equipment as needed  as resetting poles the dogs knock over, adjusting obstacles heights, and taking care of leashes for dog trainers.

How is the money earned by the crews used?

All funds earned from agility trials go directly to Animal Aid’s Urgent Veterinary Care Fund to help care for animals and their companions in times of unexpected need.
