To ensure our discussion make sense, I will focus specifically on DOG AGILITY.
Dog Agility as a dog sport has been set up by a group of dog lovers in late 1970s in the United Kingdom. A group of like Minded People in the United States later introduced Dog Agility to North America and the bloom of this Great Dog Agility Sport to the World is history.
However, Dog Agility was introduced in Singapore in the 1980s. Back then, the organising groups are the Singapore Kennel Club and The German Shepherd Dog Club Singapore.
The Singapore Kennel Club has been a member of FCI for the longest time. However, SKC only participated FCI in the Conformation Dog Shows.
The year 2008, it's the birth of USDAA Singapore and we have been actively competing in Dog Agility Competitions. The very FIRST Team Singapore has represented Dog Agility World Championship was in 2007 at Cynosport World Games, which coincides with 20th Running of the Grand Prix of Dog Agility.
