FAQ

Generally it’s a good idea if you have done at least a basic life skills class with your dog. This will introduce them to working in a group and give you a good foundation to build your agility skills on. If you have not taken a basic life skills before but believe that your dog has the basic training to be able to do agility still, feel free to email so we can talk about what your options are.

Not at all! Many people enjoy taking classes purely as a way to bond with their dog in a fun way, while giving their dog invaluable mental and physical stimulation. While competing can be a fun way to take your training to the next level, it is far from the only way to enjoy this sport.

Agility is open to all dogs regardless of breed or age.  The only thing we require is that your dog be physically sound. Purebred, mix breed, rescue dog, old dog, young dog, we welcome everyone.

In the beginning all you will need is your pup, their favourite toys, and a big pile of treats. As you progress you will want to fashion or buy some basic equipment, but there are lots of low budget ways to practice from your own backyard.
