Agility: Beginners’ Intake – Applications Closed

Thanks to those who applied for a place on the Beginners’ Intake in January. We will contact you in due course about the planned induction and assessment session.

This will be held at our training venue at Old Warden, Bedfordshire. The directions can be found on our website: Agility Directions

We cannot accommodate any further applications for this intake; if you would like to be informed about future beginners’ intakes please subscribe to our Agility Beginners Email Alert Service.

 

 

Agility: Places Available for Experienced Dogs

We have places available immediately for dogs who have Competition experience. Dogs must be experienced on all Agility equipment.

We train at an indoor venue in Old Warden, Bedfordshire (3 miles west of Biggleswade).

Dogs must have ongoing annual vaccination and have a good recall. Please be aware that we run two classes concurrently per session – the arena is divided by a plastic mesh fence.

Dogs and handlers will be assessed by Instructors and placed in the appropriate class for their level.

To enquire about Agility training for an experienced dog, please fill in the Enquiry Form on our website.

For more details about Agility training at Letchworth DTC, please refer to our website.

Agility Training

There will be news of a future intake of dogs new to Agility in the near future. Please subscribe to our Email Alert Service to be notified when our new beginners’ intake opens.

 

Agility: Block Payment

The block payment for this term is £30.00. There will be no half-term break. The last training date, the Christmas Party, will be on 12th December.

Paying by block payment works out cheaper than paying weekly. It also secures your dog’s place for the term. There are a large number of people who have registered their interest in Agility training; we need to know the numbers of current attendees in order to be able to plan ahead in order to accommodate new people. For this reason paying weekly will only be accepted in exceptional circumstances by prior arrangement.

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.
