Talented canines at Flying Feet Agility

Posted: Updated:

Keith Kaiser learns how trainers get their canines to perform at their peak.

Flying Feet Agility uses a blend of training methods - clicker training (operant conditioning), lure reward, and traditional training to create willing and obedient canine partners.

Dog Agility is a sport in which a handler directs their dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy.

The dogs perform such obstacles as jumps, tunnels, A-frame, teeter totter, and weave poles.

The 2013 Greater Louisville Training Club American Kennel Club (AKC) Agility Trials are happening at Broadbent Arena at the Kentucky Exposition Center on Thursday, March 14, - Sunday, March 17, 7:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public.

More than 900 dogs will compete daily on three different courses during this showcase emphasizing a dog's agility.
