Agility Training Schools in other areas

West Suffolk Agility ClubWest Suffolk Agility Club

At West Suffolk Agility Club we teach responsible dog ownership and train our dogs with patience, kindness and reward. Throughout training classes dogs are continually rewarded with small food treats and lots of verbal praise and encouragement.

Although we are one club, we meet on Wednesday and Thursday evenings and run them as two separate groups. Wednesday’s class is known as the Fun & Social Agility and Thursday as the Improvers & Competition Level Agility. During both evenings experienced Instructors teach beginners on a one-to-one basis within the classes. We do not run set Beginners Courses as all dogs learn at different rates; the class Instructor will decide when each beginner is ready to learn each new piece of equipment.
