You may have seen agility at Crufts, or heard about it through social media. For those who haven’t, it is a fast paced sport in which dog & handler work together to tackle a sequence of obstacles – in the correct order – and as quickly as possible. Despite the speed involved, handlers don’t need to run; we teach your dog to do the work, so you don’t have to!
We teach agility from foundations (for dogs under one year old) through to the highest levels of competition. All of our training is taught with competition in mind, to ensure your dog completely understands how to navigate all obstacles and can do so safely and independently – but this doesn’t mean you have to compete! We have a number of students who have been coming to us now for several years who have no desire to compete at all; they just love coming each week to spend that time working together with their best friend.
Agility isn’t just for border collies; here at Nutter Dogs Agility Club we have dogs such as spaniels, poodles, australian shepherds, lurchers, patterdales and staffordshire bull terriers!
We regularly host guest trainers and hold additional training workshops, which can be booked via our bookings page.
equipment and venues
We use competition standard equipment from First Contact and Doggyjumps. We have a mix of First Contact and Naylors heavyweight tunnels.
Over summer we teach both indoors at Catlow Fold Farm in Burnley, and outdoors at the Nutter Dogs Field in Burnley.
Due to the fast paced nature of the sport, it is important that your chosen footwear at either venue allows you to move freely. No wellies if you’re trying to run!
prices and booking
Agility classes cost £84 per 6 week block, with 4 per group at our outdoor venue and 5 per group at our indoor venues. Classes may be sold via the open Nutter Dogs Agility Club Events group on Facebook if you are unable to attend one or more weeks.
