Fitness, focus and fun for you and your dog. Agility is a great way to practise basic training skills in a fun, high energy way. It doesn't matter what breed of dog you have - they all love agility!
Your dog will learn to negotiate tunnels, jumps, a seesaw, dog walk and weaves and reinforce basic commands. For example; stay, turn left or right and come back. Sessions are suitable for all dogs over 9 months old who have a good recall. Dogs under a year will go over poles on the ground, not jumps.
In October 2019 I passed exams with the UK Agility Club after completing an intensive 4 day training course with them. I'm now an accredited Agility Instructor. I've been competing in dog agility for twelve years. I have two competing dogs, one in Grade 7, the other competes in Grade 6. I was an agility instructor for Barnard Castle Dog Training Club for 5 years and was a member of their agility team that competed at Crufts in 2015, which can be seen here:
Agility is a great way to build a dog's confidence, reinforce essential commands and provides a fantastic opportunity to bond and have fun with your dog. It provides great physical exercise, mental stimulation and fulfils many of their natural instincts.
All agility lessons are private lessons held at my outdoor venue in Scorton, North Yorkshire. Your initial trial lesson is held at my house in Melsonby, this lasts 45 minutes and is an introduction to the basic skills needed in agility.
