A sport in which you and your dog can both build up a relationship full of fun for both of you.
Agility is a sport in which the handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for time and accuracy, meaning that speed and control are both important.
It is one of the fastest growing areas of dog sport in Australia and world-wide.
Dogs run off leash, and rely on the handler’s voice, movement, and body signals for direction.
There are various levels of competition, with increasing difficulty, more obstacles, more challenges, and faster target times as the team moves up through the levels.
Training for agility relies on the handler establishing a firm foundation through which the dog understands that it is a team sport.
Dogs need to be under control off leash even in a very exciting environment.
Initial training is on the ground, so even younger dogs may start.
Training on the obstacles and jumps has to wait until dogs are one year old, so that they do not damage their growing bodies.
Taking obedience classes and agility foundation classes is a good way to fill in time and build the dog/handler relationship.
The following class times are valid every Sunday throughout the training year, unless advised otherwise.
