A Look At Agility Training

Agility training is the strangest craze Iíve ever seen. What I believe is that it actually started with pets that it was made for, but eventually it passed on to their happy owners as well. It actually consists of several types of equipment with the only purpose to teach you pet some tricks - few hoops to jump through, tunnels to rush through and poles to go round. Most pet owners find those to be fun and enjoy training their beloved ones with them. They mostly use to exercise the pets and of course to teach them do something clever enough so that the owners can show off for the neighbors too.

This type of training is very helpful for dog shows for example. There all dogs have to complete a number of tasks, including run courses, obstacle jumping and Frisbee chasing and other tricks all being practiced with the help of the dog agility training equipment. However other people like me find it boring and stupid to get your pet participate or even just to watch a dog show. On the other hand itís not so strange for lonely people with unfulfilled dreams to get happier by training their pets and making them perform for the appreciation of others. It is not much different from the typical situation when parents live their dreams vicariously through children.

Despite all that just canít accept the idea of such agility training equipment being designed and sold for human use. The ones who do it go through the same kind of hoop jumping, tunnel running and pole Ėweaving, etc. as their animals do. I just cannot understand what for. It is not the typical agility training that people do when practicing a specific sport, and this is the only type of agility training that I do to some extent understand. Although sports are kind of dumb, I agree that if you are a basketball player you need to practice your dribbling, your jumping and your shooting.

Please tell me then what does ladder running teach you to do better? Probably it is to prepare you for the new world craze of professional mine-field 500m running. In fact I just think that this is another artificially created fishy way to make you get some equipment that even the pets donít like, just because it is said that this is helpful and modern. And for myself I can say that the only training I need is such one that will help me spot stupid ideas and products before anyone else has, so that Iíll be able to make sure that Iím out of their way, taking with me as many people as possible.
