Dog agility is for any breed of dog that may compete in Agility Association of Canada  trials whether they are purebred or not. The dogs are grouped into three classes: regular, specials, and veterans.  Each class is further divided into jump heights based on the dog’s height measured at the shoulders.

The Cariboo Agility Team is a small club that also puts on a dog agility trial in August every year to which participants attend from all over the province.
