Dog Agility is an increasingly popular sport - it blends speed, skill, co-ordination, balance, discipline and a special partnership between dog and handler. We offer Agility for Fun (Non Competitive) classes where you and your dog learn skilled control to negotiate
jumps and various obstacles. Not all handlers wish to enter competition with their dogs and that's OK, so come to enjoy fun for handler and dog.
How agility began....
Dogs NZ rules govern this sport, and as a Club we must abide by them. Dogs from 18 months of age can start instruction. However they are limited in what they are allowed to do. This is to ensure no injury to joints or ligaments of a still growing dog.
On reaching the age of 18 months they are introduced to all obstacles and once confident, anything from 8-16 weeks, move up to the next class where other areas of training are explored.
Norwest Dog Training Club offers Non Competitive Agility for Fun on Wednesday evenings (weather permitting) at 7pm - participants are asked to come earlier at 6.45pm to help put out the equipment.
If you are wishing to participate please note that dogs must have good focus, some impulse control, be able to work off leash and have a good recall. Costs are $150.00 for initial 7 weeks, course, this includes $50.00 annual membership, so you can continue classes throughout the year.
