For those still craving or wanting to try Agility
We will be offering Jumps and Tunnels TBA
Due to cyclone damage to our training grounds we are unable to offer a full Agility course at this time until it has been cleared by Insurance. We are sourcing another area to train. Please let us know if you hear of an area we can use.
Strengthen your bond and take your dog’s training to the next level!
What is Agility???
Agility dogs run an obstacle course of low jumps, tunnels and contact objects lead by their owner.
We believe that offering this fun sport will be encouraging better dog handling skills, a form of physical activity for both dog and handler and increased the awareness of the responsibility, pleasures and satisfaction of owning a dog.
Introduction to Agility- April due to storm damage we will have to postpone
Saturdays 9am – during the dry only
3 week course, $100.00
This class runs for 3 consecutive weeks. It gives a novice the basic handling skills required to work successfully with your dog in agility and heaps of fun while doing it.
This class covers:
• Flat ground work
• Stretching exercises for the dog athlete
• Introduction to jumps
• Introduction to contact obstacles
• Introduction to tunnels
• Introduction to course work
What to bring:
• A “bum bag” so your hands are free and treats/rewards are quickly available
• Really yummy treats for your dog and some water for you
• A leash and soft collar
• A sense of humour
After completing the “Introduction to Agility” classes, you are ready to move onto more advanced exercises such as “looking ahead for the next obstacle”. We will teach you and your dog the importance of forward movement.
All our classes consist of a short warm-up, stretching for the dog and control exercises. The control exercises will be jumps and contacts or weave poles.
