Agility training is structured so that Beginners and Advanced alternate each 4 weeks. Members are encouraged to continue obedience training when not attending either beginner or advanced agility. Obedience training will greatly assist handlers to improve their dog's agility skills. Classes are held at 9am on Sundays.
Join Agility Instructors in a group Beginner's class in the enclosed Agility area to learn about this wonderful sport. Certain obedience standards and dog conformation development apply. You will be assessed before moving into the Advanced Agility Class.
Join Agility Instructors in the enclosed Agility area to put your more advanced dog through its paces over the varied agility equipment - the dogs love it - and it keeps you fit!
Demonstration Agility Team
A further development of the Club's Dog Agility program has been the
an Agility Demonstration Team which performs at several major functions through
This team consists of dogs that are Obedience trained to a high level, that
good skill in using the agility equipment, that have stable temperaments and can
work in close proximity to other dogs; and whose handlers are prepared to
the time necessary to develop and to learn routines suitable for
Because the dogs are required to do things that are contrary to, or moves
considered unsuitable for competition Agility, members of this team are
generally members who want to do agility purely for the fun of it, not those aiming for more serious agility work.
An example of some of the differences between demonstration and competition training is having more than one dog working equipment at the same time whereas competition dogs work alone; dogs doing 'touch and goes' on the table whereas competition dogs must stop and 'drop' on the table for five seconds; and demonstration dogs often being slowed for a movement to go smoothly whereas competition dogs aim for the fastest possible speed through a course.
Anyone in the club whose dog has reached the required level of training and whose owner has the time for and interest in this team is encouraged to join the Agility Demonstration Team. It is a great deal of fun and publicly shows off the skills dogs and handlers receive from the Milton Ulladulla Dog Training Club.
