More advanced training classes including Agility and Rally are available upon completion of the initial course.
Dogs can progress in Agility training from basic level through to competition and really enjoy the challenge provided by the jumps, tunnels and contact obstacles.
Training for the new dog sport of Rally O includes obedience, agility and fun moves which are suitable for both young and older dogs as there is not any undue physical effort required. The handler and dog team negotiate a course by following directions on signs.
