Trials are not just for people... Some animals get judged on agility as well.
On Monday, in Fairbanks the Tanana Valley Kennel Club held and judged the agility trials for not just the dogs, but the communication and focus of their handler as well.
A lot of training must be done between each trial and expectations are fierce...each handler trains differently and has different words used to command their dog.
The Tanana Valley Kennel Club has 15 competitions a year. This gives handlers and their dog chances to improve and compete throughout the year.
