From Library Journal
"Simply put, Agility is the most fun you can share with your dog," the author asserts, and those who have jumped on the bandwagon for this fast-growing sport will enthusiastically agree. Racing against the clock, dogs must, among many challenging obstacles, clear a series of hurdles, dash through tunnels and up and down see-saws, and weave in and out of a line of closely spaced poles. Simmons-Moake provides a solid introduction to the sport, while husband Gordon's detailed appendix on obstacle construction is extremely useful to those just starting out. Public libraries, especially those serving communities with active dog obedience clubs, should consider. Areas with established agility clubs will prefer Julie Daniels's Enjoying Dog Agility (Doral, 1991), which offers excellent step-by-step training instructions (including puppy training and agility for children) as well as creative ideas for obstacles; it refers readers to the U.S. Dog Agility Association for information on obstacle construction.

I have been to my first competition, and have a yardful of agility equipment built from the back of this book on which my friends and I practice.
Ms. Simmons-Moake is easy to read. She is enthusiastic in her book and in person. I highly recomend this book especially to the beginner as they will get the nuts and bolts of agility.
