Here at CCATS, we’re proud to offer a range of dog agility classes, to suit all levels and abilities. Some are open to complete beginners, while others require Club Membership in order to take part.

Check out our current class offerings below…


INTRODUCTION TO AGILITY (INTRO)

In our 8-week Introduction to Agility class, we share our love of dog agility and support you to have fun and create a strong bond with your dog.

You’ll be introduced to handling and training of agility through games, tricks and basic equipment while your dog gains body awareness and self-control in the face of distractions. 

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to navigate basic agility equipment.

This course is offered 4 times a year, and requires registration. Click here to find out when the next one is being offered!

If you have never done agility before, you must complete this course to move up to our Basics class. No experience is required, but basic recall and obedience skills are a must!

When: Wednesdays – 6:30pm – 7.45pm, Mairehau High School Tennis Courts


LEARN THE BASICS (BASICS)

In our Learn the Basics class, we build on the skills you learned in the Intro Class and support you and your dog to grow your bond and teamwork in an encouraging and supportive environment.

You’ll learn the basic handling maneuvers and jumping techniques of dog agility and be introduced to short courses, weave poles and contact equipment.

Before entering this class, you need to either have completed our 8-week Intro Class or have contacted us to let us know your previous agility experience, so we can place you according to your skill level.

In our Build the Skills class, we help you to turn the basics into solid agility and dog ‘life’ skills.

You’ll learn how to combine handling maneuvers and jumping techniques in courses and become confident and competent in completing the weaves and contact equipment whilst on course.
