What You’ll Learn
Agility is a fun sport you can share with your dog. It is rare to see a dog that, once it is trained, does not love doing agility.
Agility is a sequence of obstacles, which the dog and handler must try and negotiate without fault within a standard course time. It is a team sport where you are in charge of the strategy and your dog is responsible for the athleticism. Dogs leap over hurdles, power through tunnels, zip through slalom of upright poles and scale ramps of different sizes. The aim is to find the balance between the control of the dog and the speed of the performance. Scoring is based on faults, similar to equestrian show jumping. A dog that completes the obstacles correctly within the set time will earn a Clear Round. Dogs earn titles when they achieve a set number of clear rounds.
PTODC conducts courses that offer you and your dog a structured introduction to the fun sport of agility in an environment that is both safe and fun. All courses will be based on positive training methods. Our agility classes are held in Victoria Park on a Monday Evening starting from 6.45 pm at Harold Rossiter Park.
The classes will give you:
- The knowledge and skills needed to educate your dog using positive reinforcement
- Handling skills required to navigate your dog around an agility course
- A better relationships with your dog
Your dog will have fun and learn:
- How to learn
- Basic foundation behaviours needed to perform the obstacles
All levels are catered for from beginners to competitive level dogs.
