Agility WOrkshops

We run a wide variety of Agility workshops throughout the year. Unless otherwise specified there is a maximum of six dogs and handlers on each workshop. Some workshops are suitable for young dogs but if you are in any doubt do check with your trainer.

All workshops are held at Coppice Gate Farm except where specified.

To book a workshop, please email Toni at [email protected]. Once a place is confirmed you will be asked to pay by cash or by bank transfer.

Advanced Sequencing

31 October
9:30 - 11:30 am

Can you do all the basic handling manoeuvres, but then struggle to execute them correctly when they are straight after each other? We will look at a selection of sequences including out rounds into Ketchkas and rear crosses; rear crosses into pull throughs; multiple pull throughs and push throughs.

Members £20 / Non-members £25

Advanced Weaves

31 October
12:00 - 1:00 pm

A session focussing on weaves for dogs that can already weave consistently. We will focus on more difficult entries, crossing to the other side and other distractions while the dog maintains momentum. If you have a specific weave problem we can also cater for you.

Members £10 / Non-members £15

Foundation Ketchkas

31 October
2:00 - 3:00 pm

Learn the foundations and practice on simple sequences. Dogs need to have confident wing wraps.

Suitable for some young dogs.

Members £10 / Non-members £15

Champ Handling

A handling session based on a previous Championship Agility Course.

Contacts

7 November FULL
12:00 - 1:00 pm

Improve your dog's understanding of your contact criteria, build their consistency and speed. Suitable for stopped and running contact methods.

Suitable for some young dogs.

Members £10 / Non-members £15

Pull Throughs

7 November
2:00 - 3:00 pm

With bigger gaps between jumps the way of handling pull throughs is becoming more diverse. Are you confident that you know how to handle them in a way that is consistent with your handling system? Do you know when to use them or not? This session will improve your understanding and execution of the old classic!

Suitable for some young dogs.

Members £10 / Non-members £15

Best Line Grade 3 & 4

22 November FULL
10:00 - 12:00 am

These sessions allow you to try different ways of handling certain sequences, and time them to see which is the best route for you and your dog. Therefore these sessions are suited to dogs who can do all the basic handling manoeuvres relevant to their grade, as we will not be spending time teaching the basics. (Handling sessions do consider the best line but also focus on HOW to do each manoeuvre.)

Obstacle Discrimination

5 December FULL
10:00 - 12:00 am

Obstacle discrimination is becoming more common in all grades of agility as judges lean more and more towards European style courses. Includes weaves, tunnels and contacts.
Handlers need to be confident that their dog understands their commands (verbal or body language) and can accurately complete the correct obstacle at speed as directed - a dog that hesitates does not understand the information he is being given.

Maximum 8 dogs

Members £20 / Non-members £25

Motivation

5 December
1:00 - 3:00 pm

A session full of sequences to encourage your dog to work away from you and create motivation. Dogs must be of a sound temperament to work in this session.

Suitable for some young dogs.

This is also an ideal workshop for beginner dogs to get used to working in a group environment. These motivation sessions are ideal to be used regularly and the dogs that benefit the most are those that repeat them on a regular basis.

Maximum 12 dogs

Members £14 / Non-members £18
