Giant Mastiff has no hurry to complete agility course and wins the crowd


First and foremost, agility is a sport that few people are familiar with, but that most dog lovers will certainly enjoy.

The sport is designed to demonstrate a dog’s ability to work with his owner in a variety of scenarios. Good-at-this-sport dogs are usually intelligent, disciplined, and have a close bond with their handler.

Agility is, after all, an athletic event that needs physical conditioning, intense focus, hours of training, and the capacity of a dog to function as part of a team.

As you can see, it’s no stroll in the park, and dogs who have mastered the sport are incredibly intelligent creatures.

However, in the hilarious video below, you’ll see one of the top agility course competitors in the world, and what he can achieve will leave you dumbfounded.

Well, sort of. Because Zeus, the gentle giant, appears to have his own method of ‚running‘ through the barriers.

The big dog clearly failed the agility course while competing at the Rocky Mountain Cluster Dog Show in Denver, Colorado, as he recorded the slowest time ever. Instead, he won every single heart in the audience, and that’s a significant deal.

The English Mastiff moves slowly through the obstacle course, but he is as agile as they come for a dog of his size.

He may not be the fastest dog in the race, but he is undoubtedly one of the most relatable. His handler wasn’t really happy with Zeus‘ performance, but at least he tried!
