Agility

Agility is a great, fast-paced sport for any breed of dog. It’s a comparatively new form of dog competition, where the animal’s fitness and the handler’s ability to train and direct the dog over and through certain obstacles are tested.

We will work closely with you and your dog, developing their skills on each piece of equipment – ensuring your dog understands what to do and remains safe when jumping and using any piece of equipment.

Our knowledgeable staff offer training and guidance for you and your dog.

Throughout all of our training, Foundation Work plays a vital role. We teach strong Foundation Behaviours to ensure that your dog has a thorough understanding of the task in hand. We never use forceful methods and our training is
100% positive reward based.

Many behaviours and skills taught in our Life Skills sessions will be relevant for Agility too. For example, a start-line wait is developed from your dogs clear understanding and strong foundation in self-control, sits & waits.

We can work with you just for fun, or even with those of you who may be interested in competing in Agility too.
