Agility

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.

Dogs run off-leash with no food or toys as incentives, and the handler can touch neither dog nor obstacles. 

The handler's controls are limited to voice, movement, and various body signals, requiring exceptional training of the animal and coordination of the handler.

Flyglity

Flyglity is a dog sport originating here in New Zealand combining Fly with Agility in which dogs race against each other from a start/finish line.

Unlike Agility, courses consist of a single line of hurdles, which the dog runs alone to a box that releases a tennis ball to be caught when the dog presses the spring loaded pad, then the dogs return back to their handlers while carrying the ball.

Obedience

Obedience trial is a dog sport in which a dog must perfectly execute a predefined set of tasks when directed to do so by his handler. 

The basic objective of obedience trials is to recognize dogs that have been trained to behave in the home, in public places, and in the presence of other dogs, in a manner that will reflect credit on the sport of obedience at all times and under all conditions.

Rally obedience

Rally obedience (also known as Rally or Rally-O) is a dog sport based on obedience. 

Unlike regular obedience, instead of waiting for the judge's orders, the competitors proceed around a course of designated stations with the dog in heel position.

The course consists of 10 to 20 signs that instruct the team what to do. Unlike traditional obedience, handlers are allowed to encourage their dogs during the course.
