Agility Training

We are delighted to be offering Agility again!
Our Agility classes run on Monday evenings.  We have 3 levels:- New to Agility, Improvers and Pre-competition.  All the training will be to competition standard so if you get the bug you will be in a great place to start competing. If you just want to have fun with your dog, then we do that too! It's what Ainsley and Diane do with theirs - doing it for fun!!!
Nick joins the Active Paws team as our specialist in agility.  
As an ACAI qualified agility trainer he has been training dogs (but mainly their handlers!) since around 2004.  He has competed since 2001, first with Harvey, a chocolate Labrador, then with his medium collie-terrier cross, Parker, and latterly with his Australian Working Kelpie, Bruce.   
He can be seen regularly at Kennel Club and non-affiliated Agility Shows; both competing and supporting through ring party, and more recently some judging. 

He is passionate about Agility and in introducing and helping both dogs and owners to enjoy the benefits and fun of this great canine sport.
