Indoor Fun Agility Course

Please note: The Indoor Fun Agility Course is only run during the Autumn and Winter months.
It is only run during the Autumn and Winter months, because Jenny is away during a lot of Spring and Summer at Agility competitions.
If you're looking for something fun, challenging and interesting to do with your dog during the Spring and Summer months, why not take a look at our Advanced Skills Courses?

The Indoor Fun Agility Course runs over a five week period and is run by Jenny Keehan. Jenny has vast experience with both competing in Agility and teaching the discipline, and holds a British College of Canine Studies Fun Agility Coaching Diploma (passed with Distinction), and she is a Grade 3 handler in Kennel Club Agility and senior level in UKA Agility. Katie will also often be on hand to assist. These are indoor courses, using low indoor equipment, and the emphasis is on teaching the very basics of the Agility discipline and having fun with it.

Each five week course is limited to just eight dogs, as we feel it is important to be able to give each dog and owner the time and attention that they need. It is very important that all dogs who attend this course have a good level of obedience in place, and are very attentive towards their owners. They must also have a very sound temperament around other dogs. Ideally, dogs attending this course will have completed at least the Intermediate Course with us, but it's not strictly limited to just those dogs. However, this course is only open to dogs of 12 months and up. If you are unsure as to whether or not this course is suitable for your dog, please contact Katie.

Indoor Fun Agility
The course will begin with the very basics, such as the teaching of the "Wait and Release" commands, teaching your dog left and right, walking on both your left and right sides, getting your dog to move away from you and getting them to confidently go through a tunnel. The course will move on to introduce and teach all of the indoor equipment, including: the tunnel, weave poles, the hoop and the low gate jump. It then moves onto more equipment time and a full equipment course.
Those who have completed an Indoor Fun Agility Course with us before (or anywhere else) will quickly be progressed on to the slightly more challenging equipment and full course.

£45

5 well structured 1 hour classes.
Full support paperwork (including a specially written training manual).

Training Methods Used:
We only use positive, reward-based training here at Kadarow. It is crucial that the dogs feel happy, confident and enjoy their fun agility training.

To begin with we encourage the use of "high value" treats, but then also encourage the practice of "random-rewarding" of the treats later on in the course (more will be explained about this during the course).
The most important training aid is you, and your body language and voice; praise is crucial.

How Old Should the Dogs Be?
The Indoor Fun Agility Courses are only open to dogs of 12 months and up. We only use low indoor, safe agility equipment, but this does include some low jumps. It's crucial that the dogs' growth plates have fused before introducing them to any jumping or any kind of impact on their joints, so 12 months of age is the minimum (and this can be even older, depending upon their breed). If you have any queries about this, please feel free to contact Katie.
