Agility & Jumpers 

What is Agility in Australia?    
Agility is a canine sport where the dog and handler race against the clock to negotiate a sequence of obstacles within a set time. There are three levels of competition starting in novice (10 - 12 obstacles), then open (14 - 16 obstacles) and  finishing in masters (18 - 22 obstacles). As the amount of obstacles increases the rate per metre decreases, increasing the level of difficulty. To obtain a qualification towards a title the dogs must obtain a "clear round" this means they must have no course or time faults.
The obstacles include different types of bar jumps, grouped bar jumps - better known as a "spread"or a "triple" three jumps - two bars and one solid , broad jump (low flat wide jump), hoops, tunnels, see saws, scrambles, dog walk, weaving poles (eight for novice, twelve for open and masters) and a table

The number of obstacles and the rate per metre that must be covered all depends on the class being judged. How a title can be gained is covered in "How titles are gained in Australia". 

The number of Large Munsterlanders training and competing in Agility is ever increasing. Although Munsterlanders take time to "mature" when it comes to the exciting sport it is well worth the wait. Their desire to please you along with their "team spirit" can make this sport a very rewarding pastime. Pictured below are some very successful  Large Munsterlanders.
