The Club’s mission is to share an appropriate location, safe equipment and knowledge about agility. Members share a social network allowing for exchange of information. Courses are offered to members and non-members. The introductory courses allow a privileged contact to promote canine sport. Everyone is welcome.
Agility Base 1 : Introduction to the obstacles
This group course is intended for people interested in discovering agility and to have fun with their dog. It serves to familiarize their dog with the various obstacles of an agility course.
The dog will learn not to fear the different equipement and will gain confidence. The handler will learn to motivate, reward, and enjoy the success as a team.
Agility Base 2 : Basic handling
While continuing to develop the bases of the first course, we now discover the basics of handling through sequences of a few obstacles. The dog learns to follow the handler’s gestures, and the handler learns the body language required to communicate with their dog. The dog gains a lot of confidence, to the point where several people see a positive change in their dog when they’re back home. Introductory courses are open to all dogs regardless of breed, age and without any prerequisite. Handlers are also of all ages and physical condition.
Agility Base 3 : Advanced handling
Now that the dog is self-reliant on each obstacle, the team is able to complete a course or a sequence of obstacles. The handler learns different types of handling to use according to the difficulty level of a course. The team is more and more at ease with the changes in direction in a course or sequence of obstacles.
