The CACIB International Dog Show in Ratomka featured a dog agility competition. It is a dog sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for time. The sport originated in England in the late 1970s and is suitable for any dog, regardless of its age, breed, or size. Dogs compete in three height categories: below 35cm, 35-43cm, and over 43 cm in height. The simplest course consists of barriers and tunnels, more difficult ones feature an a-frame, a seesaw, and a dog walk. The course is 100-220 meters long.
