Dog-agility trials set

WASHINGTONVILLE — The Youngstown All Breed Training Club AKC agility trials will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and next Sunday at Four Seasons K9 Athlete Center, 2 Painters Path.

About 200 dogs are entered in the trial, which is free and open to the public. Agility is one of the fastest-growing dog sports in the United States, the Youngstown club says.
