Pre – Agility

Pre- Agility is so important as it teaches your dog all the necessary skills and body conditioning work to enable them to enjoy agility safely. Just as we would not embark on a new sport without learning the correct way, it is exactly the same for our dogs.

Whether we want to do agility just for fun or to go on to compete its essential that we learn the dogs correctly to enable them to have a happy and healthy agility career.

See the Agility section for a list of all the agility training we offer.

Pre-agility 1

A 6 week course which is suitable for any dog new to agility aged 10 months upwards. We learn the control, balance, conditioning, relationship and focus work needed to progress on to the agility equipment.

It is important that the dogs learn to do the equipment safely and correctly and in the pre-agility we teach them all the skills needed to do this. We introduce some basic agility ground work and handling skills in this course. Contact us for the full course content.

Dogs need to have recall skills and basic manners to join this course, please get in touch if you need any help with this as we run a variety of workshops and classes to help you.

We have regular monthly intakes for our pre-agility courses but our places do fill fast, please see the Upcoming Events section for our next start date.

Pre -agility 2

This is a 6 week course which follows on from the pre-agility 1 course for those wanting to carry on their training.

In the classes we will slowly be introducing the dogs to more of the equipment used in Agility when the dogs are ready and it is safe to do so. We also introduce some basic handling skills and develop the skills already covered in pre-agility 1.

After the second course has been completed you will be offered a place in the weekly foundations class.

We are passionate about creating happy and confident agility dogs who love the sport as much as their handlers! In our Agility training classes you will not only learn the agility skills but also the most important bit – the team work skills, which go hand in hand with your agility training!

Being a certified Pro Dog Trainer with Absolute Dogs we can bring you the same skills throughout your training used by Agility Team GB member Lauren Langman who is the founder of Absolute Dogs.
