If you are new to the world of dog agility it can often be confusing knowing where do start and how to do things properly and safely.
I am passionate about creating happy and confident agility dogs who love the sport as much as their handlers!
In my agility training you will not only learn the agility skills but also the most important bit – the team work skills which go hand in hand with the equipment training!
If you like having fun with your dog and your looking for a new hobby to do together then agility is for you! Whether you plan to do it just for fun or to take it into the competition ring my training will suit your requirements.
I train all dogs the same fun, safe foundations. Whether you decide to take it to the competition ring or not, you can be safe in the knowledge that you have trained your dog the correct way.
Getting your dogs to complete the obstacles straight away may seem fun however, if your dog gets injured or scared from doing things too soon and not learing correctly, the damage it will do to your dog will not only be painful to your wallet, it will harm the relationship you have with your dog too!
Agility is a team sport built on the relationship you create together. It is a fantastic way to bond with your dog while giving them an outlet to work their body and their brain!
If you have a dog that is a little anxious, or isn’t keen on other dogs, my agility training is suitable as my training is done via one to one sessions in a secure arena.
Do you have a dog that is full of energy or who needs a job to work their brain? Agility is the perfect blend of both physical and mental stimulation.
The benefits of starting agility training with your dog are endless, they include:
- An increased bond between you as you become that perfect team!
- Focus in new environments.
- Focus around distractions.
- Increased recall skills.
- Increased loose lead walking skills.
- Mental stimulation.
- Physical fitness.
I specialise in Agility Foundations having successfully achieved fantastic results with my own dogs climbing the grades within months of them starting their competition careers. Many of my students dogs have also achieved great results when embarking on competitions.
I train with a number of elite agility trainers and coaches who have represented or are currently representing team GB. You can be assured that all my training is knowledgeable, relevant to the sport and kept up to date.
When training with me you will be training on high quality KC approved equipment.
Agility training can not be rushed, it is important that dogs learn the skills correctly and safely if they are to enjoy longevity in the sport.
I run One to One Agility Training Sessions, Online Training, Fusion Training, Small Group Workshops, Webinars and Seminars.
One to One Training is the perfect way to start your agility journey, it allows your dog to enjoy fun one on one time with you without the distractions of the other dogs that you get in a group class. For dogs who are ready for that next stage of training, to practice their skills around other dogs I run small group workshops.
My One to One students get access to a private Facebook community group where they can chat with other students, ask questions and even post videos of their training.
I pride myself on offering fun, kind, ethical and knowledgeable training where both the handlers and dogs are relaxed, having fun and learning new skills together to create an amazing team!
DOGS NEED TO HAVE A SOLID RECALL AND THE ABILITY TO WORK OFF LEAD TO COMMENCE AGILITY TRAINING.
