John competed at the World  Championship Agility Open in 2011 and 2012 representing the Republic of Ireland.

All our instructors have experience in competing in both Championship and Open agility competitions and have a weight of experience under their belts but most of all our agility classes are fun!

BEGINNERS – Agility for fun
For dogs and owners who have always wanted to give it a try. Agility training is suitable for all types of dog.

This course introduces the dog to the agility equipment and eventually they become comfortable working on all the pieces.  Note: A basic level of control of your dog is advised before undertaking agility training.  If you would like to give it a try email: HERE

Note: We are experiencing a huge number of enquiries for agility places so there may be a waiting time before you can start training.

INTERMEDIATE/NOVICE- Agility for fun and competition
For dogs and handlers who have been trained to use obstacles at beginner standard and wish to move on to a standard where they can then enter agility competitions.

Intermediate/Novice agility will focus on dog handling, using the equipment to the best of their advantage and course walking (stewarding at competitions is an option)  Note: It is important that dogs are fit before undertaking agility training.
