What will my dog and I be taught?

Agility is a fast and entertaining team activity for you and your dog. Your dog will be taught to perform a series of tasks on your command. They will run through tunnels, jump over hurdles, weave through a series of upright poles, jump through tyres and run up and over ramps and seesaws. Your dog must be fit and so should you be as you must run with your dog. This is a great way of combining fun and exercise for you both.

A current vaccination certificate must be produced on enrolment at the beginning of each four week session.
