What is dog agility?
Agility is an obstacle course for dogs made up of many separate challenges. Faults are awarded for knocked poles, missed contacts and failed weave entries. The winner is the fastest dog with the least faults. Most dogs love to do agility, even if its just for fun, and it gives owners a real sense of partnership with their dog :)
At BUDS we promote motivational, reward based training using toys, treats and lots of praise. We teach skills to handlers in a fun, relaxing and friendly environment to lead their dog effectively around the courses.
Taster Courses run for 4 weeks so you get the opportunity to see if agility and/or hoopers is something your dog might really enjoy. Tasters are aimed at dogs of all ages, including puppies over 6 months.
The emphasis on these classes: easy exercises, with fun and enjoyment for everyone.
