QUEENSTOWN DOG AGILITY CLUB
Founded in 2016 by local NZ agility competitor, Flip Collins, due to the need for a space for those that wanted to learn agility from the experts AND a place for social fun with our dogs.
We are the local experts in obedience, dog agility & flygility.
In less than a year in July 2017, we become the only affiliated club with Dogs New Zealand (New Zealand Kennel Club) in the whole of Central Otago/Southern Lakes region. We have members who are dog agility championship competitors and whilst we have the talent in the club to learn from senior levels we have lots of members that hang and just come for fun with their dogs! We welcome all and have monthly socials with or without our dogs!
We have fun social dog agility and fly-gility sessions for everyone from all ages (our youngest handler is 9 years old) and provide training for the sport competitors. For those that have just finished puppy school and want to continue training or your dog needs to brush up on manners, we have our Canine Good Citizen Programmes then you can enjoy full agility training from 12 months +.
We are a club where the main priority is dog and handler safety, your fun, the latest new Dogs New Zealand regulated safe equipment to create an environment where social fun agility and competitors work together!
We strongly believe in care and safe fun for you and your 'fur baby', so we have teamed up with 'Pet First Aid Training' NZ to give members a $20 discount to help provide all the best care we can give our best friends. Mates 4 Life also provide great discounts to keep your doggie healthy and happy.
Dog Agility is great for keeping the brain active for those active high energy dogs! We are a non-profit bunch of dog lovers that just love to share their wealth of agility knowledge for others to have fun! Young or old, come and give the biggest and the best local dog agility experts a try!
To have fun with your best buddy in a safe supportive environment where dog and handler safety is our number one priority.
Learning dog agility handling techniques and enabling fun for all! Agility training your dog the wrong way can be harmful and can change dog behaviour. We don't let that happen.
