About SWAT Dogs UK

SWAT competes successfully with members producing great results in both local and national competitions. There are now over 50 dogs on the membership list - some doing agility for fun and fitness but with a large majority who do compete.

SWAT has become the most successful South West based agility club in the national league tables, having reached The Agility Club's Premier Division. This has been achieved by consistent teaching, having fun, recognising the specific needs of individual partnerships and planning their training accordingly - no two partnerships are the same and this has to be a huge consideration in methods and systems taught.

SWAT do not advocate the use of harsh training methods/handling. SWAT firmly believes that your dog is your pet and friend, first and foremost, if it competes at agility then that's a bonus. We do not tolerate dog owners who rehome dogs purely based upon the animals ability to succeed in agility. Agility is a hobby.   

SWAT was founded, and is run by me, Toni Davis. I organise and oversee all the training helped by a few others who have a long history of training at SWAT. Between us we do all the agility training, ensuring consistency is maintained throughout the club. You can be assured that you are ALWAYS trained by someone competing at the highest levels of UK agility.

SWAT is sponsored by the SMART Clinic, who provide a complete rehab and fitness service for our canine friends. As the SMART clinic is run by vets they can offer so much more than massage and osteopathy, including acupuncture, ultrasound, physiotherapy and hydrotherapy, for a vast array of animals.

SMART Specialist Veterinary Referrals is the only independent specialist pain management and sports medicine rehabilitation centre in Europe and have two state of the art bases in Wales. Insurance companies will usually pay for treatment at the SMART clinic following referral.

And once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted sufficiently, we are delighted that SMART will be using our venue to hold monthly clinics.
