Numb3rs Game

     Supporting agility dogs with specialist lifetime cover

It's a fact...

It's a well known fact that agility children can count up to 20 before they can read but, in general, numbers don't come up much in agility unless, of course, you think of how many times you wished your dog could read the course numbers in the ring! Statistics can be boring as old boots or fascinating. Below are some little know facts and figures we hope will light up your agility life.

If you have any suggestions for the numbers game - serious or light-hearted - email them to Agilitynet
