Maggie Bonham, the author of Intro to Dog Agility, November 28, 2000, From the Author:
"Dog Agility is one of the fastest growing dog sports. This book is intended for the beginner who is looking to learn and have fun with his or her dog. It's a great sport for anyone with a dog -- your dog doesn't have to be a purebred. I cover selecting a dog (if you don't already have one), conditioning your dog, nutrition, health, travelling with dogs, entering a trial, the differences between AKC, UKC, USDAA, and NADAC agility, agility rules, training on obstacles, handling fundamentals and problems. I emphasize positive training techniques and focus on having fun with your dog. This book is full color with step-by-step photographs showing you how to train your dog on obstacles and in sequencing. You'll see a variety of breeds represented from Yorkies to Great Danes. Look for the white Alaskan Malamute -- that's my own dog, Kiana. She's ranked as the #6 Novice Agility Malamute in 1999. I hope you'll enjoy this book -- I had a lot of fun writing it. This is my second book, my first is Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers."
