Dog agility is a popular and fun sport in which a handler directs a dog through a series of obstacles as accurately as possible in a race against the clock. Dogs run off lead, being guided only by the voice commands and body signals of their handler. This requires training and great co-ordination between handler and dog.

Agility has many benefits. Some of these include:

• Burning off energy and curing boredom, which will lead to a reduction in destructive behaviours around the home and even address some forms of aggression

• An increase in self esteem for nervous and anxious dogs

• An improved bond between you and your dog which will lead to a better all round relationship

• Better health and fitness for both you and your dog

• Much needed exercise which is a basic need of EVERY dog

• Fun for both you and your dog

Plus, increased fitness, flexibility and stamina for owners. What better way to get in shape?!

Dog agility has become one of the most popular activities for dog owners. With many groups boasting waiting lists of up to six months to join, there is certainly a demand for classes. One of the best things about becoming a fun agility trainer is that you can fit your classes around other commitments, and chose exactly how many you wish to run.

Agility is performed at both a fun level, and also at serious competition level. The aim of the course is to equip you, the student, with the knowledge and understanding required to set up and run your own potentially very profitable fun agility classes. The knowledge gained in this course will equip you to then progress to further studies to participate or teach at competition level if you so wish.

We are, at present, the only college in the UK offering a qualification in Dog Agility.
