Agility: Noise During Training

Please could everyone endeavour to keep dog barking to a minimum during training. We understand that it is difficult to stop a dog barking while it is being worked, but we would appreciate if you could prevent your dog from barking while waiting your turn. It is difficult for people to hear instructions from their Instructor over dogs barking.

We have some water spray bottles available to assist with controlling barking. You can also distract your dog by physically turning its head away from the source of the excitement (usually another dog working) using treats or a (silent) toy.
