TRAINING

Wellow agility offers training classes for all breeds and all levels of dogs and handlers.

 

We currently have six classes running on a Wednesday evening at our indoor venue - Manor equestrain centre at Ower. The 40 metre by 20 metre venue is separated into two areas to allow two classes to be run consecutively.

 

We train throughout the year, taking time off at Christmas and the month of August (the peak competition season).

 

Our classes range from foundation training for complete beginners to more advanced, higher grade competition level training.

 

Each training class has a maximum of eight dogs and we require all dogs to have a basic level of obidence (A good sit wait and recall etc.) and be able to work off lead around other dogs.   

 

Each class trains for 50 minutes and we allow a 10 minute change between classes to allow for dogs to be warmed up and warmed down after training properly.

 

We begin training at 7.00pm to set up the equipment in the equestrian centre.

The club has it's own Kennel Club specification equipment for all classes, that is adaptable to suit all dogs. We have adjustable height equipment and Channel/V's/Upright weave poles to suit training different dogs.

 

 

Our approach to training is that agility should be fun for both dog and handler - we understand the importance of being big on the reward whilst also being clear and consistent in our training to enable our dogs to learn to the best of their ability.

 

As a diverse and supportive club, we understand that every dog and handler 'partnership' is different and like to ensure that the training we offer is effective and allows for everyone to enjoy themselves whilst getting the best out of their dogs.

 

As a club we will support you whether your intention be to purely have fun with your dog or start competing in the dog agility world. The club is an enjoyable evening for many (humans and dogs alike). We have a wealth of experience and knowdledge about competitive agility shows in the UK and can help you get on your way -  as we have done with many of our club members. It is great to see all the hard work coming together and the handler-dog partnerships doing well at shows across the country.
