Fun Agility

Dog agility involves the dog negotiating a course of obstacles to jump over, run through, jump through, weave and more! It will test your dogs fitness and agility and yours a little too maybe!

If you do not want to compete, there is still no reason why you cannot train your dog in agility and have fun! Many of our agility dogs go on to more serious clubs to compete, with a good foundation of skills learnt with us.
Partnership between dog and owner progresses quickly as the dog enjoys the activity and the fun. The activity itself reinforces the dogs learning and we use positive reinforcement throughout to reward the learning

Teaching approach

At our agility sessions, the onus is on safety, accuracy and enjoyment – never speed. You’ll find that this comes later on the more you attend and once your dog had gained confidence in the use of the equipment!

We start your dog on lead so that we can control his speed and accuracy and teach you both what to do at each piece of equipment.

Most dogs end up off lead before too long and we have many methods to teach your dog to think ahead and negotiation the equipment with precision.

Our sessions are not competitive, just great fun! Whilst one dog is using the equipment, we give you all exercises to do to keep you focused and ready for your turn!

Requirements to enroll in a class

To attend an agility class all dogs should be 12 months and over
They should be fit and well and able to jump over obstacles, weave around poles and be able to balance on agility contact equipment.

Dogs attending an agility group will need to be comfortable working alongside other dogs and people.
For those dogs who are not comfortable with other dogs, a one to one appointment is recommended working on agility skills
