Your agility and footwork

You will have to be physically agile as well as mentally agile to train your dog. You have to be really quick on your feet to avoid tripping over a playful pup simply bursting with energy. You have to watch out for accidental trips, especially when you are executing quick turns. Tripping over might hurt you or your pup and disrupt your training schedule.
