Ashleigh and Pudsey came along for the day in September 2015 for agility, HTM and trick training, everyone had a great time!
If you do not want to compete, there is still no reason why you cannot train your dog, however, be aware that a lot of handlers started out doing it just for fun!
Try a competition! Join in our simulated show...
Compete against your peers over an agility course, two attempts at the same course and your best run counts.
Rosettes for 1st and places at each height, depending on the number of entries.(You may run at your preferred height, not the dog's measured height)
Rehearse a show environment with your dog - warming up mentally and physically, walking the course and considering your options.

I am now able to offer dates for some Rally training, with Jill Clinch, which is a really good foundation for agility.
Rally is interesting obedience moves linked together to form a simple course and is suitable for all breeds, abilities and ages. It is done on lead initially and should you wish to compete, level 1 is also done on lead! All that you need to be able to do is walk your dog on a lead and for them to know sit and down. Rally is an excellent foundation for agility as your dog learns to work with you in a small, hopefully calm group environment before starting agility training which can make dogs very excited!
If you're interested in taking part sessions will last approximately 60-75 minutes and it is expected that you will be available for most if not all of the sessions.
New Rally dates, all Thursdays:
6.30pm for those with some experience of Rally and 7.45pm for new handlers and dogs.
