Agility involves handlers guiding their dogs through a course of obstacles. This takes finely tuned skill & involves dog & handler working as a superb team. Obedience, control, focus & a strong bond are all essential for this sport & most dogs absolutely love it. Why not challenge yourself to be your dogs sat-nav & give our fun agility a go. Canine Concerns uses standard competition equipment made to KC specifications. (dogs must have a good level of obedience off lead & be comfortable around others for the group classes)
April-Oct, for dogs over 1year (18 months for large/heavy breeds)
For all tennis ball lovers. Flyball involves a race over hurdles to a triggered box releasing a ball. The ball is collected & returned over the hurdles to the start line. Sounds simple? This sport takes a lot of drive & training is broken down into small segments to achieve the end goal. Dogs must be taught to execute turns safely & quickly encouraged by their handlers. Canine concerns flyball equipment is made to BFA & KC specifications. (dogs must have good obedience off lead & be comfortable around others for the group classes)

Here at Canine Concerns we are qualified scentwork trainers & sniffing mad - we love it! All dogs love to sniff & explore their surroundings, it comes completely naturally. Why not work with your dog & teach him to use his nose, explore & find things for fun. Great for confidence & building bonds between dog & handler, this activity is suitable for all breeds, ages & fitness levels. Nose work uses a lot of mental & physical energy without the high impact aspect of many other dog activities - perfect for the young & old.
