Oscar is a pit mix we have. He had a lot of pent-up energy where running wasn’t really an option for him. With this agility course, he’s able to run, jump, and exercise, and he’s a lot calmer in the runs during the day. He’s normally barking and jumping like crazy, but now he naps and can’t wait to go back outside. Meet Oscar here.
