Agility

Agility for All Levels

Our agility program is designed to assist you to reach your goals – whether that be to just have fun with your dog, perhaps to compete at the occasional local weekend trial or strive for provincial, national or international level competition. Our focus is to assist you and your dog to work together as a team. As well as technical handling skills and performance based mental management, our curriculum includes essential sport specific strength, conditioning and body awareness exercises for canine athletes to keep your dog in top form and to reduce the chance of injury. Our training philosophy is that of positive reinforcement.
