Agility

 

Agility is a timed sport where a dog and handler team race around an obstacle course. The obstacles include a variety of jumps, hoops, tunnels, elevated platforms and ramps, and vertical poles for the dog to negotiate. Agility is particularly suited to energetic breeds who have good handler focus.

To commence training at CDC dogs must be at least 14 months of age and pass our intake test. This consists of a basic fitness test and an off-lead control test.

You can see our entry requirements and skills guides for each level by clicking the links below:

Each year we run five sessions of night classes. These 2-month sessions are held on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday nights, depending on the level of instruction being taken, and on instructor availability. We generally do not provide a new intake class in winter because the cold is de-motivationg for dogs and handlers alike.

For more information please contact the Agility Subcommittee convenor here, or download our brochure here, or our Agility Handbook here.

If you wish to register your dog for the next available intake, please complete an Agility Information and Intake Form and provide to our office.
