Photographer's Note

Dog agility is a sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy. In its simplest form, an agility course consists of a set of standard obstacles, laid out by an agility judge in a design of his own choosing.

ParAgility is in fact, agility for handlers with a disability. This means handlers can be in wheelchairs but still make a team with their dogs and run together in paragility competitions. (for more info please check this link)

Today, during the second National Agility and ParAgility Championship, dogs were tested for obedience and agility. Unfortunately paragility is not very popular just yet or not even very well known, so there weren't too many competitors. Even so the team pictured here had a very good evolution.

** inspired by galeota's wheelchair theme ... of course the technique and quality of the composition is hardly comparable to the photographs already posted in the theme ... still, i love this image - for the empathic communications between two friends: man and dog ... and for THAT look
