This course through (roughly) fortnightly classes (plus a couple of Saturday or Sunday sessions) under Cathy’s guidance and instruction, is designed to help you plan your goals, assess the skills that you and your dog currently have, and then spend the time effectively training to develop your dog’s skills and understanding ….so that you can become a successful Agility team. It will suit dogs needing to build and refine their Agility skills and is also perfect for puppies (activities will be specifically tailored) as they start out.

Bring clarity to your dog, while playing and having fun.
