Although these will be fun classes, safety will still be important, everyone must first attend a 6 week beginners course to learn how to use the equipment properly, all dogs will jump the appropriate height and all equipment will be safe to use and KC rules/regulations will be followed to ensure you and your dog are safe whilst having fun and learning new skills. All courses are limited to 6 dogs per class. I have been training and competeting in agility for 8 years and currently competete with two of my dogs.

6 week Pre-Beginners course, £75

Next courses start on Saturday 27th July 11am FULL

Saturday 14th September (spaces)

Upto 6 dogs per course ONLY

Follow on classes are run on Wednesdays 18:30 till 20;00 and Saturdays at 10:00am-11am, £10 a session

What will me and my dog learn on the beginners course?

If you haven't had any agility lessons in the past then the beginners course is crucial for you and your dog. You will learn:

  • How to get your dog focussed on you and only you
  • Settling your dog down when needed (E.G packing up equipment)
  • How to safely setup the equipment
  • How/what/when to reward your dog
  • Turns
  • Jumping safely
  • Tunnels
  • Contact equipment (A-Frame, See-Saw and Dog walk)
  • and much more, everything you need to either do agility for fun or go onto competitions!

The weekly follow on sessions will involve different courses for beginners and more advanced teams.

''Me and my German Shepherd both really enjoy the agility class of a Saturday morning to the point that he is sitting at the front door waiting as soon as I get up. We have done agility before but I think Lucy is friendlier and pays more attention to the needs of the dogs and how to help them approve. I can't wait to start the beginners class with our GSD that we rehomed last year. I'm sure she will love it as much as my boy does xx''

''I've been taking Anni to Lucy's agility beginners classes for a few weeks now and she loves it. Lucy is a patient and positive trainer who caters for each individual dog in the class, she doesn't do "the one size fits all" . We'll be moving on to the next level for sure. I have already recommended Lucy and Les to friends for puppy classes and the Rowdy Rovers.''
