Agility New Starters is for dogs and handlers new to agility or those current handlers who are starting agility with a new dog. Dogs need to be 12 months or over to join.
Agility is both mentally and physically stimulating for dogs and humans. It is great fun, and once you have mastered the pieces of equipment, joining them all up in a course provides new challenges. Then we work on handling techniques to get the fastest and most accurate rounds - there is always something new to learn which is why it is so much fun.
If you are new to Agility we run Starters Agility groups. New joiners need to be 12 months or older. You book for 5 weeks at a cost of £50. Once you have completed your first 5 week course and you want to continue, you will can move in to our Beginner Agility group which runs weekly with a rolling start paying 5 weeks in advance.
Alternatively, for dogs with some skills, you can join in to our Beginner Group if there is space, with first week being a 30 minute 1 to 1 with our trainer to go through the basics.
The class is held outdoors so please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Full details of what to bring with you will be supplied in your confirmation email once you have booked.

Summary of classes
Starters - We gradually introduce your dog to all the equipment, helping you to train your dog to achieve their best along with confidence work, handling and focus exercises. Dogs need to be 1 year old to join.
Beginner - Once your dog had learnt all the basics in our Starters group and your dog knows all the pieces of equipment, we start running you around short courses.
Improvers - Building on the skills learnt in the Beginner class, for handlers the individual pieces of equipment are put together into small courses and we start looking at handling skills - that means it is over you to as the handler! We keep it fun, we work at improving individual equipment skills and build from small exercises into a larger course. The handler builds more skills including independence, distance work, obstacle discrimination and proofing.
Advanced - those who want to compete with their dogs. Ideal for those who want more of a challenge, we work on individual equipment, advanced handling skills, course walking and problem solving.
