Agility is the fastest growing dog sport in the UK, It is fast, furious and a great favourite here at Canine Capers.
We train all standards of dog and handler, from beginner through to advanced.
Although we train all dogs to competition standard, if you just want to come along and have fun with your dog and meet other like minded people, that's fine - there's no pressure to compete.
Before starting agility your dog will need to be up to a certain standard. They will need to be physically fit, and ideally will be motivated by either food or toys. Dogs are motivated in different ways and by different things, we can help you to choose the most appropriate reward system for your dog.
With beginners to our group agility classes we recommend that you attend our Good Citizen classes first. These classes will help you build many of the foundation skills for agility.
Everybody can take part in agility, any age / breed / type or size.
Whether you aspire to compete at Crufts or just want to have some fun and exercise for you and your dog. These classes are suitable for everyone. We will introduce you and your dog safely to all the different pieces of equipment and then progress onto teaching you how to handle various sequences.
We strongly believe that your dog will learn best by having exercises set for them to succeed at, which gives them more confidence...which sets them up to succeed again and again!!
We ensure that in all of our classes dogs are challenged enough to use their brains, but are not given unrealistic goals which will de-motivate them in the long term. This is the reason that dogs who train with us progress so quickly - even those with novice owners.
We are extremely lucky to have the use of an indoor riding school near South Brent for our training sessions,(a mile away from Avon Dam). Training can therefore take place all year round regardless of the weather. Sturdy footwear is recommended for handlers as the surface we run on is sand and rubber mix and warm clothing should be worn in the winter months.
