I started learning about the amazing world of agility in 2015 with my new rescue dog Cooper. We started out with very low expectations, but it was obvious very early that we were about to start a new amazing adventure together!
Cooper wasn't the easiest dog to train, he had no recall, easily distracted and was a bit of a free spirit, fast forward 5 years and we have now competed at various events around the country, including the Kennel Club international festival. This event is the largest in the world with a huge amount going on, but we have had 2 first places, 2 second places a 3rd and a few other top ten placings, not bad for an easily distracted dog!
I now have Delta, a beautiful young Border Collie, Delta has huge potential to get the highest level possible during her career. Delta has shown just how important the foundation work really is, because agility is much more than just going over some jumps and through a tunnel, it is a partnership, and it is that partnership that I am passionate about helping you discover.
If you are looking for something new to do with your dog then please do get in touch, my foundation classes are available to any dog over 6 months old, all use of the equipment will be age specific and your dog will learn how to negotiate everything in a safe and positive way.
As agility is an off lead sport, my only rule is that your dog is happy to be around other dogs and has a decent enough recall if needed. If your dog is struggling around other dogs, please contact me for some general dog training and advice prior to booking on to agility.
If you do have a dog that struggles around dogs but you would like to start agility please contact me to arrange some 1-2-1 sessions. This would be a great place to start with your dog and you wouldn't have the worry of other dogs. I am member of The International school of Canine psychology and Behaviour. This gives you not only an agility instructor, but also a dog trainer.
