A Gundog Working Test, Field Trials or even a walked up

shoot may not be your thing, but if you want to gain an

incredibly strong bond with your dog, exercise his body

and redirect his mind then this could be the activity for

you and your Slovak.

Dogs just adore agility which can become highly addictive.  

It’s a perfect solution to flex his health and mental stimuli as

Agility can reduce your dog’s boredom threshold, improve

his behaviour, his off lead reliability and increase the

communication and body language skills between you both.

This activity is available to anyone of any age and personal

ability, ranging from young children to retirees.  The fitter

you are the better, but it’s certainly not a requirement in

order to join in. 

What’s known as Agility Trials usually take place throughout

a whole weekend with many handlers camping supported

by local clubs and are reported to be friendly affairs

where there can be no elite or favouritism within competitors,

clubs or dogs, as winnings are based purely on the dogs’ ability, not the breed, breeder or kennel. 

There are classes available for most breeds and Slovaks are up there.  The rules appear quite complicated at first glance, but as with anything it soon becomes clear so don’t be put off by them and there are always others around to help you. 


Whatever pastime you decide to do with your dog, Agility has to be right up there with the best, it’s fast, furious and fun but above all has enormous benefits for you both.
