Why: Agility is a fun way of teaching your dog to pay attention to you as well as improving your bond and overall obedience. A well trained dog is not only a pleasure to be around but is also safer for the public and for your dog themselves.
Further Info: Agility is a sport where you guide your dog round an obstacle course, off lead. When fully trained you will be able to enter competitions were you will have to direct your dog around 20 obstacles, against the clock.
Foundation agility training is covered in class and all techniques are kind and reward-based. Classes are kept small (max 8) and are taught by a qualified behaviourist with 12 years’ experience.
Foundation classes – this class is good for complete beginners.
Intermediate classes – this class is for dogs that are competent on all equipment (except weaves) but need work on handling skills and owner focus.
Advanced Classes – this class is for dogs that are competent on all equipment, are focused on owners off lead and are already able to do obstacle sequences and some advanced handling.
Dogs must be sociable with people and other dogs to attend, agility classes are not suitable for dogs that show signs of aggression to other dogs or people. We run dog socialisation courses if required, find out more on these here.
