We run 4 classes which range from beginner dogs/handlers through to competitive G6/7 dogs/handlers.

Classes Available:

1 Foundation class dogs from 9 months onwards. This covers all the foundation exercises which are the precursor to agility and gives the dogs a good grounding and helps to create a partnership between dog/handler.

2 Young dogs competitive class which is for dogs moving up from Foundation that are able to weave and wish to compete their dogs.

3 Improver class is for dogs/handlers who are competing but also for handler who still wish to be challenged and have fun with their dogs.
