Pre Agility

This 6 week course teaches the mental and physical skills we believe a dog needs before they start their agility training!

This course has been curated and designed by our agility instructor, Tori, to make sure your dog is ready both mentally and physically to take on agility training!

As this course does not involve any equipment we will take dogs from 6 months old with prior professional puppy training experience, and can easily be done at home with our online course!

See below for the skills we work on and why they are so important!

Body Awareness

Proprioception - ability to perceive action and movement of parts of the body

Your dog needs to know where their putting their feet, especially when traversing pieces of equipment! This also help with their jumping ability and style!

Drive

the reason our dogs run and chase

You want your dog to be happy to power on ahead of you in agility, so encourage their drive to help build speed and independence!

Building your dog's value for being near you will build their value for working with you!

Confidence

having no doubt in their abilities

A confident dog is a happy dog! Agility can be scary sometimes, things move and are high above the ground. We need a confident dog to do these things!
