    Dog with bundles of unchanneled energy and bounce?

    We’re working dog owners and know what it can be like living with a smart and energetic dog! Without an appropriate channel, their boundless energy and unmet natural instincts can come out in all sorts of problematic ways: running, chasing, playing, hunting and lack of hearing when they’re busy doing something ‘important’ to name a few!

    Maybe you’re looking for something fun to do together regularly to keep your dogs physically and mentally stimulated?

     

    Agility helps dogs and owners enjoy an active life together

    You may know your dog loves to jump, but do you have the brakes and steering?

    Courses will give you a great insight into the dog sport agility and help master the basics skills to not only tackle obstacles but also navigate courses.

    Introducing your dogs to this new challenge will keep their brain ticking and focus their love for life.

     

    How they work

    The £99 training package includes 5 sessions: a 4-week course of 60-minute Group Classes + 1 x Private Training Session.

    • When you book, you can expect welcome emails with all the details you need before the day. 
    • Your initial confirmation email will include a coupon code you can redeem on the Anglian Dog Works’ online booking system to book the 121 at no additional cost.
    • You will meet each week with the Training Team and like-minded handlers to learn new agility skills by being guided through steps of progressive exercises.
    • For example, teaching dogs to sit-stay at the start line & confidently run straight and curved tunnels. Learning to take jumps in a line and ‘fans’ without ducking under or swerving around the outside. Turn left and right when given a directional cue. Run independently down a line of jumps and improve recall. Plus, teaching you agility handling moves such as ‘front crosses’ and 'go rounds'.

    • Each week of the course has a theme, so if you miss a session of your block, you won't find yourself behind the rest of the group when you return.

    • The 121 included in your package can be used to focus on your training goals: anything from general obedience and puppy training, to agility, gundog work or content from the classes. 

       

      ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐“…Each session is very well organized, with exercises clearly explained and the emphasis is on your dog enjoying it all! We are learning so much…” Debbie, Course Attendee
      ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐“…We really really enjoyed it and the thought and planning you put into sessions makes it run like clockwork - which is important for an enthusiastic dog…” Mitch, Course Attendee

       

    • After training, you will be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to train your dog. You will receive clear instructions and the steps on how to continue your independent practice for dog agility training, at home, between classes.
    • When you complete the block of classes you will be invited to Agility Club sessions, exclusively for course graduates and those that come to agility 121s. These pay-as-you-go 1-hour group classes are tailored to the individuals who sign up and are designed to help our experienced dogs continue to progress.

     

    All ages, breeds, and experience levels are welcome

    All breeds of dogs who have had their vaccinations and are 6 months and onward are welcome.

    Activities can be adjusted to be lower impact and therefore suitable for puppy agility foundation training as well as an activity to do with older dogs. READ MORE

    The courses are suited for all experience levels, even if you have had little or no training.

    Dogs must be suited to working in a group setting, off lead, and not ever shown aggression or bitten a person/another animal. 

    The friendly professional team will be there to offer support and guidance should you need it, as well as throw in challenges for those that want one!

    Handlers don't worry that you will have to do lots of running to start with! In our agility training, we progress in layers and will only be doing short sequences to start with and progressively advance your dogs’ skill and confidence by building independence, so they work at a distance from you responding to your cues (giving you a head start!).

     

    Want to join us?

    You can check availability and book online by selecting one of the options below.

    Note: If you see the message "No appointments are available this month" on the booking page, this is because courses are fully booked; please use the contact form to get in touch and let me know you're interested as I have a waiting list you can be added to & I will message you if there are any cancellations or dates added.

  • Can I bring someone to watch?
  • Yes, spectators are more than welcome. 

    What we recommend is that you decide who will be handling your dog and stick to that person doing the training for the duration of the session to save any confusion for your dog.

    Any children under the age of 18 must be always accompanied by an adult.

    Absolutely PAWtastic Agility sessions!

    I've attended the beginners agility course with two of my own doggos, a working cocker and a cockapoo - both completely different in every way, especially speed and handling techniques, but both absolutely loved the course with Emma, her little hints and tips have been invaluable and we continue to enjoy and thrive in the agility club too! Highly recommended 🐾

    Great introduction!

    I did an agility taster session with my Springador Holly and we really enjoyed it. It was a great way to see if agility was something we both wanted to pursue, which it now is! Emma was a patient, thoughtful trainer who adapted exercises easily for each dog, enabling us to all achieve something from the session. Thank you

    Happy dog, happy owner :)

    My young, energetic spaniel absolutely loves the agility classes. He's grown in confidence, his focus and patience are better and he's learning new skills.
    The classes are structured in a way that allows dogs (and their owners!) to learn at their own pace, they're challenging without being too difficult and are loads of fun!
    Emma's 121s are also a great way to learn more about the various aspects of agility training and improve your skills as a handler.
    Can't recommend enough :)

    Our puppy loved it

    We look our 7 month old poochon, Rupert, to a taster session and he loved it. We knew Rupert was good at basic commands and had bridles of energy so had fancied trying agility with him. This was the only group we found that catered to all ages and sizes. I was a little anxious that people might think we were a bit ambitious as Rupert is a small toy breed but we were made very welcome and Emma and the team were really positive about how he was doing. The class was really well structured and covered both tunnel and jumps as well as obedience elements. Rupert had a great time and so did we. Thank you

    Thank you so much for taking the time to give such lovely feedback; we love hosting these events and it's really rewarding to hear you and Rupert enjoyed it too. We hope to see you again in the future
