Running & Footwork for Agility DVD by Eric Bobkowski
Every sport has some kind of footwork, agility included. Unfortunately, footwork is not given very much attention.
Proper footwork can get you through a course more fluidly, with fewer steps, and even shave seconds off your time. Proper footwork can also better cue your dog for the next obstacle. Most importantly, good footwork can help prevent injuries. Unfortunately, knee injuries are increasingly common among agility handlers, but you can help prevent them by improving your footwork.
Footwork for forward sends, footwork for deceleration, sprinting, and warming up before you run are also covered.
