Happi Days Agility Rings 1 & 2

Dog agility is a dog sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. There is so much fun to be had today for both owner and his dog, as you are put to the test over a set of challenging jump hurdles, ramps and hoops. Join the team from Happi Days test your nerves of steel against that clock!

Flyball is a fun, social activity for both dogs and owners.
