CC Agility offers training at all levels. Training is based on positive reward based methods.
When a new foundation class starts we aim to progress everybody in the class at the same rate. This means we can keep everyone in the class together and keep your class on the same day at the same time as much as possible. However if your personal circumstances change or your progress is at a different rate we will always be supportive and try our best to make sure we can accommodate you. We pride ourself on small class sized with a maximum of 6 dogs per class.
All equipment is Kennel Club standard equipment.
Our foundation classes are for dogs who have never done any kind of agility. (basic obedience required) All equipment will be on the lowest height or flat on the floor to begin with. These classes are suitable for dogs from 7-8 months old and onwards (breed dependent -for example; large breed dogs would need to be a little older, email for information) You’ll learn jumps, go rounds, turns, tunnels, tyre and contact equipment on lower height only (A-frame, Dogwalk, Seesaw). Short sequences are part of the class. This is an 8 week course.
Beginner classes are suitable for dogs who have already been introduced to some of the equipment on a lower height or the ground. Your dog may now start to do more sequences and learn some more independence learning to go ahead, find tunnels on queue, learn some basic weave entries etc. As your dog progresses you will aim to go to full height contact equipment, be able to do longer sequences which involve turns, change of direction and hand changes. Weaves are taught with 2×2 and channel weave method with homework.
These classes are for dogs who have done all the equipment at the correct height, we will practise speeding up your dog, proofing of contacts, different weave entries and basic course handling and walking.
Approximately grade 1-3
Fit & Fun
These classes are run for dogs that are able to do all equipment at the correct height.. but are not wanting to compete. As the name indicates these are fun classes which you and your dog enjoy. Although it is aimed to be fun you will still be trained properly to ensure everything is trained safely and properly. Should you decide to compete in the future you know your dog has been trained correctly.
These classes are suitable for dogs who are aiming to compete or already compete. Classes will vary to be grade appropriate working on various areas, learning new skills, working on handling, finding the best routes on a course for your dog etc
Give your dog a one-on-one training session that caters to their specific needs. These lessons may be suitable for your dog if they are not able to be in a class environment, or you feel you need to work on something individually.
Private lessons are available throughout the week and at weekends please contact Tanisha for booking.
