MKDTC is an established club that has been running agility training for over 25 years. We train every Wednesday night between 8pm-10pm and our classes cater for all ability levels, from complete novices to experienced Grade 7 handlers and dogs.
We train at Milton Keynes Eventing Centre, which is based in Hanslope, just outside Milton Keynes. We benefit from all-round year training with an indoor 60m x 20m sand ménage.
The beginners agility is an eight week course available to dogs over 12-months old who have a basic level of obedience (dogs must be able to work off the lead). During the eight weeks, you and your dog will be trained on every piece of equipment and by the end of the course you will have learned to handle small course sequences.
Once you have completed the beginners course, if you wish to continue your agility training you will join the starters group. (See below tab.)
The beginners course is generally available during September-March and at other times by negotiation.
The starters group is for dogs who have progressed and completed the beginners course. In this group you and your dog will progress to higher jumps (dog height dependant) and develop greater handling skills to allow you to complete more complicated course sequences.
Groups will be split into small, medium and large dog heights where applicable.
The starters group will also have a competition focus where you will eventually learn ring skills and rules of competing.
This group is open for those who have progressed through the starters group and are wanting to take their agility to the next level to start competing, or those who are already competing. Although the starters group has a competition focus, this group will help develop you and your dog to a competition standard, with a strong focus on course-work and development of both you and your dog.
If you have previous experience in agility with another club or at MKDTC and would like to start again, we offer an introductory course to get you and your four-legged friend back into the swing of things.
