Dog agility is a fun sport where an owner can make a true bond with their pet, they need to trust each other and they will both get a lot out of the training.
Dog agility measures the handler’s ability to direct their dog over a course with various obstacles in a race for time and accuracy. There are various grades which the handler and dog work towards. This sport appeals to all ages, from pet handlers to handlers that wish to go out and compete. A dog must be a year old before they can start this sport, and takes lots of training which the dogs enjoy as much as competing.
Training classes are held at our training field which is Scald End Farm, Thurleigh, MK44 2DP. The classes are held on Wed’s and Sunday’s, times are as follows.
Advance/Beginners – 6.00 to 7.00pm
