Agility Angels Competition

Agility Angels uses the sport of dog agility to help children and teens diagnosed with Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome develop social skills and self-confidence.  Our boys have the wonderful privilege of being involved in this wonderful program.  Each week they are able to work with their coach and dog to teach their animal how to run the agility course.  It's a great organization that is run by an awesome set of individuals!!!  They have been holding competitions all year, but we have been unable to attend due to timing, etc.  Today was our first chance to participate.

Even though Joey was not feeling well due to a medication reaction, he made it through the course twice.  He was very proud of his ribbons, and we are very proud of his accomplishment!!!


  1. Never heard of this activity before what a great idea. You do so many great things for your children:)

  2. What an AMAZING program! I am so jealous, but happy for you.:) This would be wonderful for my daughter who has Asperger's. Thank you for sharing. Stopping by from the Crew! Lori
