Agility Classes - for dogs who have completed Canine Basics and reached a certain standard in their training.  Dogs learn to run through tunnels, over jumps and through weaving poles.  These classes:

  • Give you and your dog the chance to attend classes on an ongoing basis
  • Help refine your training skills and teach your dog new things
  • Assist with confidence building, co-ordination and focus (for you and your dog)!

Classes are at Somersby School and times vary depending on time of year and on demand.  Information on class times will be provided to people when they complete other classes, so is not on the website, but is on the "Class Availability" post on Facebook. 

If you are enrolling for Puppy classes or Canine Basics with the intention of doing agility classes later on, please let me know at the time of booking.  Places in these classes are becoming very limited, so advance notice is helpful!
