Welcome to Agility Training

Agility Training


It's true to say that Agility is not anything like as easy as it looks, but it's great fun for both you and your dog, and it will develop a great teamwork between the two of you.

Teaching the individual items of equipment is fairly straightforward, the skill in this sport is in directing the dog from obstacle to obstacle in the most efficient way and in the fastest time!

What you need to know before you join the Agility classes.

Your dog will need to be at least 12 months old, and reasonably fit.  

You need to be able to have full control of your dog when he is off the lead in the company of other dogs, and he needs to be listening to you while working.

Be prepared for some hard work.  Like other dog sports, proficiency will only be gained by regular practise as well as club training sessions.

Like all training, you will get out of it what you put in to it!

Lynn and Credit

David Lay

David Lay - Looking out for the competition!

Dave Lay has been competing with his Border Collie Darcy, for the past 8 years. Together they have enjoyed considerable success, winning out from grade 1 to grade 6 within 12 months of starting competition and also becoming the UK Agility Starters Champion in 2009.
Dave and Darcy originally started obedience training with Warlingham DTC, successfully gaining the KC Bronze and Silver Good Citizens Award before joining Sunniday and Pachesham dog clubs where they both train every week.
The pair also still compete, although Darcy is now in his veteran years! Dave is a very patient trainer, who understands that what works for one dog (or handler) might not work for another. He is happy to tailor his approach to suit the specific needs of each dog (and giving up is never an option!)
