Intelligent, athletic, and eager to please. Pointers are a breed that thrives in training for a variety of canine sports because they want nothing more than to make their owners happy. The more time you put into your Pointer, the more you will get out of your relationship with your partner and best friend.
Pointers are a very versatile breed, willing and athletic, making agility a great avenue for fun and training with your Pointer. Agility training is a great way to build teamwork with your dog working at a distance from you. You work as a team to negotiate a timed course taking obstacles such as an A-Frame, Teeter, Weaves, Tunnels and Jumps placed around the ring. Pointers can be blazing fast and can earn advanced titles easily with proper training. And another benefit is that you get good exercise too!
APC has an agility trial as part of the National Specialty each year and local all-breed clubs offer agility trials throughout the year, both indoors and out. Check the APC event page and with AKC to find a trial near you.
