I am an Agility noob but a dog-trainer who is relatively versed in the positive reinforcement/clicker realm and I think this book is absolutely essential and invaluable for anyone wanting to REALLY do Agility. All the components necessary to be SOLID performers and LOVE doing it are taught to both humans and dogs alike in this book. It is very large and a bit daunting at first, but each step to teach first the foundation skills, then the skills needed to prevent the usual problems, then the equipment themselves, and then how to put it all together is ALL in here. Yes you can take a class, and yes there are lots of them out there,but most of them skip the basics before putting dogs on the equipment because they believe most people will get impatient with the "foundation":skills. But how do you get a dog to truly LOVE slamming that teeter-totter down, or really RACE around the ring? It's in here! If the dogs can't actually compete before they are 15 months old, what do you do to help them when they are pups? That is all in here too. I am literally reading it cover to cover, and every page is full of solid, useful information and advice. And even if you don't want to take it to competition level, the principles used about the RELATIONSHIP between dog and handler and how to foster it using the sport of Agility are spot-on IMHO.

I can also use it to evaluate any class I take; this book is showing me what happens to the Agility performance when classes cut corners or skip steps, and by reading this book I will be more prepared to discuss and evaluate any additional training I receive.

One last comment - buy the actual book, not the digital version, because being able to quickly flip back and forth between sections and being able to actually see what is going on in the photographs is more than worth the added cost. I read this in reviews before I bought my copy. I am REALLY glad I followed their advice, so I am repeating it to you, O reader of reviews. :)

Thoroughly explained, with plenty of background info so you can understand why the techniques were developed as they are, and so you can use them intelligently. Step by step instructions with b&w photos to show how it looks when done correctly. The photos, I have to add, are thoughtfully chosen to illustrate the exact moment and body language you're looking for as you train. I can't afford the time and cost to take a class in agility with my dog, but so far this book seems like truly the next best thing.

This is a great book indeed, and I looked forward to having it on my Kindle in a nice portable format. However, none of the pictures or helpful charts can be enlarged, rendering a lot of the book useless. It's very hard to read descriptions of an exercise, but not be able to see the pictures well enough to really see what they mean.

Then, the helpful charts, such as "Guidelines for Shaping Aim For It", suffer from the same problem. The font size is way too small to read, and doesn't enlarge no matter how you change the zoom.

So, yeah, great book, but the Kindle edition is only 2 stars in my book. Buy the paperback instead.

My class instructor used this for her textbook. The advice clearly stated and is solid. Personally found some of their understanding about dog psychology to somewhat over-simplified. I work with collie-dogs and find they are much smarter than the authors give dogs credit for-however that is neither here nore there. It's not enough to detract from their wonderful step by step approach. They definitely made me rethink and challenge my own existing training standards as well. It's well worth every penny and would strongly recommend it be read slowly to absorb all the nuances of the methods. I've been taking just a few pages a day and sometimes re-read some so that I can instill their methods when I work with the dogs.

I received this book just in time to be able to read through it on a recent vacation. It is very well-written and easy to follow. I have taken a couple of my dogs through basic agility classes in the past but this book taught me some of the basics that were never implemented in our classes. Additionally, it explains the terminology, registration, and competitions well, something I never quite understood before reading this book. I highly recommend it!

This is an excellent book with great detail and original ideas. The author does a great job of breaking down the training process into small steps, and of explaining the underlying principles behind her technique. This book is great for teaching agility to dogs, but the same concepts can be applied to teaching a dog, or many other animals, a variety of useful and fun skills. I have applied some of this thinking to my horse training with remarkable results.
Simple fellow
great tips, however, it would be nice if cd came with it for added visual explanation.
One of the better books I've read on training (both dog and handler) for agility. The authors have broken down clicker training in a way that allows even a novice handler to appreciate the simplicity and effectivness of this training method. While you still have to practice and work with your dog, this book gives you a blue print on how to proceed.
