Similarly, it is asked, what are faults in dog agility?

Also, what is the difference between novice A and Novice B in AKC agility? Novice A and B Novice A is just what AKC describes it as - the Novice level for people with no AKC titles in ANYTHING (Obedience, Rally, Agility, Tracking, etc.). CGC doesn't count because its a certificate not a title. Novice B is for Novices with some sort of AKC title.
In this manner, when should a dog start agility training?
Dogs usually start competing in agility between the ages of 1 and 2. Puppies and young dogs may injure themselves by jumping hurdles. Talk to your veterinarian to figure out when your dog will be ready to attempt the jumps. You can start training your dog before they're of age to compete.
