Agility is a fun sport for both dogs and their owners. ACODC offers Agility to its members.
We run several levels of Agility from Foundation to advanced classes. Our team of instructors have many years of experience between them and would be more than happy to introduce you to this fantastic sport.
If you are interested in taking part in Agility you will need to be a current financial member of our club and your dog must be able to do the following:
- Be handled by an instructor
- Be able to complete a recall (stay and come when called)
- Be able to work off lead without running away
If your dog is not up to the above level keep practicing your obedience training you will be surprised how quickly dogs will pick up these skills. Persistence is the key to success.
If your dog meets the criteria and you would like to start agility you will need to attend one of our Agility introduction sessions and go from there.
ACODC run its Introduction Classes on demand. To register your interest for this class please use the Contact page to send us an email.
ACODC has developed a foundation class for members wishing to learn Agility or are taking part for the first time. Foundation classes are simple ground work activities which will help to prepare your dog for the larger obstacles and to understand the Agility basics.
Some of the activities covered in our foundation classes are:
- Tippy Board
- Travel Board
- Uprights and jump bumps
- Low Tyre
- Rear end awareness exercises
Advanced classes run from 8:30am every Sunday. A full ring and course will be set up each Sunday for members to train.
Setting up and Packing away
All members wishing to participate in Agility are required to be on hand to help set up and pack away the equipment used for the session. This will be discussed with you as part of your introduction class.
