Rally:

Rally is the newest of the KC sports. It involves the dog and handler negotiating a course of stations each of which has a task to perform.

It’s a great way to teach your dog new stuff and improving the accuracy of things they already know. Walking with you forwards, sideways or backwards, developing sits, downs and stands. In the higher levels there are jumps, send aways and retrieves too.

We can help whether you want to compete at live KC shows or online. Our online club is perfect is you have a reactive dog that can’t attend classes or if you prefer not to travel.

You don’t need space or equipment to practice rally, so it’s a perfect home based training activity for you both.

Canine Hoopers:

Canine Hoopers is a low impact dog agility sport with no jumping or climbing. Suitable for dogs from 6 months old, although we can start puppies on the foundation work at any time. Courses include hoops, barrels, tunnels and running contact mats to create a flowing course that is suitable for all sizes and breeds of dog. A key part of the Hoopers training is distance handling, meaning that courses are accessible to all handlers  – there is no need to run! Courses become more challenging as dogs and handlers progress through the levels, with bonus boxes and challenge lines.

The benefits are that dogs are encouraged to be confident working at a distance (proven results with nervous dogs), strengthening the connection between you, learning to wait at the start and understanding instructions and most of all to have fun with you.

It helps to develop a strong bond between the handler and the dog, increases obedience, and fulfils their instinctual need to use their sense of smell.
