Planet K9 Agility
So much FUN for YOU and your DOG!
Agility training is a super fun way to bond with your dog. This is because you must work as a team! While your dog learns to negotiate a series of complex obstacles, your skill as a handler improves. It is wonderful to watch our agility teams develop. Planet K9 has 3 levels of agility training and holds regular agility fun competitions for our members. Please read through the course descriptions to find the one that suits you and your dog. Bookings are now open for July 2021 and onwards.Each course consists of 5 group classes and class size is limited to 9 dogs. If you can't decide which course level suits your dog please give Nicole a call on 0405 772 225 or click here to send a query.
In extreme weather conditions classes will be postponed to the following week for the safety of the dogs. Classes are held in a fully fenced secure venue in Spotswood (7km from Melbourne CBD)
The level one course is for dogs who are new to formal agility classes. The atmosphere of our classes is fun and encouraging. Obstacles taught at this level include hurdles, tyre jump, weave poles, tunnels and pause table. There is a big focus on teaching the human part of the team how to support your dog, where to stand, how to move your dog from one side of your body to the other and how to give clear signals.We also teach the rules for agility short course racing and you have the opportunity to form a team and participate in Planet K9 agilty competitions.
