Agility Training Levels
This eight week course introduces the dogs to all the equipment, building up their confidence and learning the commands. The handler starts to learn the moves, techniques and control needed to guide their dog around a course. Work is started on directional commands and starting to link pieces of equipment together.
Dogs who have already learned how to negotiate the equipment and have an adequate standard of obedience training have the opportunity to practice and extend the skills already introduced.
Although the course will consist primarily of agility skills, there will be some emphasis on control training as well, as this is essential to agility.
We also run an 'in-house' graded agility certificate scheme which handlers can work towards.
Agility club operates on a Wednesday and Thursday evening from Easter until the end of September. This is available to anyone who has already learned how to negotiate all the different types of agility equipment and can complete a full agility round.
A wide variety of handlers and dogs attend agility club and we will endeavour to fit you into a class which suits your dog's level of experience and the handler's interests. Some people enjoy a more social evening whilst others are training their dogs to compete at agility shows around the country.
As well as regular training sessions we hold in-house agility competitions for club members throughout the summer.
