We meet to train our dogs in Agility. We run introductory courses with our trainer. At main club sessions you get assistance from our trainer and other members. The club relies on a friendly and co-operative atmosphere to thrive and be enjoyable. Please be aware that we have high demand for beginners agility courses means we get very booked up.
Due to high demand and covid restrictions we are sorry but we have
Sedgefield Race Course is an excellent venue.
At present we do not know when we will be permitted to have our show day.
Courses for new handlers or new dogs (or both)are run on Sunday Mornings. These courses aim to give you an introduction to the basics and then permit you to move forward to the next stage.
We can take puppies from six months but they learn the skills but do no jumping as we wish to protect the developing joints. When they are old enough they will be encouraged to start using the jumps at a very low hight.
These sessions are intended for handlers and dogs' who have completed the foundation courses. You will be encouraged by the trainer to develop your skills in this friendly atmosphere. Full competition equipment is used (the club has modern quality equipment).
South Durham Dog Agility Club we expect to be July 2020 - The venue for the show has been at Sedgefield Racecourse for two years, which is a fabulous venue.
Schedule and entry forms will be available on agilitynet.org (we expect). And entries will be through showtime processing at http://www.showtime-online.co.uk.
This is an excellent opportunity to meet others from all over the country as well as competing in our own event. We have to thank all our volunteers who make this day possible and many are members and their families..
We are a club, with a committee that looks after our activities. All excess funds are invested back into the club to help benefit all members. We enjoy working with our dogs. The health and well being of the dogs comes first.
This is our 22nd year, a mile stone in continuing training of dogs and handlers. We still have original members partaking in our activities (Humans not dogs) and continue to promote the original concept of the club.
The club was established to make sure the welfare of the dogs are paramount, to develop activities that allow owners and dogs to enjoy activities together. Twenty one years must mean that the founders managed to achieve their aims and the present membership seeks to continue this into the future. fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteu sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id.
We meet and train just south of Darlington on the Neasham road, not far from Mowden Rugby Stadium (Formerly Darlington Football Club).
Our club members and trainers are friendly and put the interest of the dogs first. We will ask for proof of vaccinations as our dogs health is important. We have members at a range of grades for agility and have some very keen flyball participants. We welcome all comers and have a large range of breeds taking part. If your dog enjoys participating with you, then we would like to see you coming along.
The club provides all equipment except, you will need is a collar, lead, poop-a-scope bags (just in case), treats and a favoured toy to reward your partner with (dog not......)
