Agility is something that makes good use of the Lurcher’s love of speed. It is a lot of fun, good exercise, and helps develop a strong bond between dog and owner.
Most Lurchers, other breeds and crossbreeds are known within agility circles as “ABC” dogs (Anything But a Collie), and it is exciting to see them hold their own, and sometimes even win, in such a Collie-dominated sport.
Lurchers are usually very accurate jumpers, having lots of muscle power, and can be so fast that it’s difficult to take a photograph of them clearing an obstacle! A Lurcher can give you as good a run for your money on an agility course as a sheepdog, and when the job is done, is happy to go home and fall sound asleep!
The perfect agility dog, really...
