The Rainier Agility Team is a non-profit club dedicated to playing and promoting the sport of dog agility. Founded in 1989, RAT was the first agility club in the Seattle-Tacoma area. RAT hosts nine trials every year and is affiliated with the North American Dog Agility Council (NADAC), Canine Performance Events (CPE), the Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA), and the United States Dog Agility Association (USDAA). RAT is a hard working club powered by volunteers – our ability to put on trials, seminars, and practices depends entirely on the active participation of our members. But most of all, we want to have fun with our dogs and our fellow agility lovers. Come on out and play with us – we’d love to have you
