The Schipperke is a high energy, agile little dog. Schips love having fun with their owners and the agility event has proven to be a great past time for them and a good way to channel their energy. And let's not forget the benefits for the human partner who not only can achieve a good physical work out, but can socialize with other dog owners and their canine companions in a friendly but competitive environment. This event need only be taken as seriously as people want it to be. Get involved just for fun or compete at the highest levels. Your Schip will love being with you and being active.
