    Agility is a playful game. Dogs don't care if you win or lose, they only care how you play the game. Not only does Click & Play Agility tell you how, but it tells you why the click and play training techniques described work. Let the author guide you through the science of how dogs learn so that you can better understand how to teach agility to your dog. You will learn about the Click & Play Pyramid, which is made up of five layers. The bottom layer, that everything else builds on, is attention. Both the dog giving the handler attention and vice versa. Consistency, the next layer, is critical to the dog's learning process, without consistency a dog's learning is slowed or stopped. Consistency leads to the next layer, which is attitude and motivation. Are both you and your dog having fun? Fun can be exciting and excitement can lead to issues with self-control. Self-control is the fourth layer. Both dog and handler self-control are critical to an agility team's success. The pinnacle of the pyramid is the concept of win/win training. Ideally in all interactions both the handler and the dog win. Throughout Click & Play Agility the emphasis is on having fun and bonding with your dog fun and bonding with your dog while clicker training agility behaviors to the highest level.
