About the event

Agility is a dynamic sport that challenges muscles to swiftly react with explosive power amidst various twists and turns. Weave poles enhance skill, precision, and speed, primarily engaging muscles in the spine and shoulders, while contact equipment demands the dog's front end to absorb landing impact and extend rapidly for a swift exit. These physical demands can exert additional stress on your dog's joints. Strengthening muscles can provide support to the joints, and enhancing body awareness can ensure correct foot placement. Enroll in our comprehensive agility fitness course to address these aspects effectively.

During class we will use gym equipment, but all exercises can be carried out at home with basic equipment.

For individualized attention to specific concerns, we offer private sessions customized to you and your pet's needs - available online for experienced handlers only
