Agility paddocks benefit your dog
What do we mean by agility?
Dog agility involves the dog negotiating obstacles on a course. Agility paddocks benefit your dog in soooo many ways!
This can be done just by the dogs natural instincts or being guided round by the handler using verbal and visual commands.
It is just for competing…
The difference between ‘Fun Agility’ and ‘Competition Agility’ is that with Fun Agility there’s no pressure involved to be fast or fabulous!
The main purpose is for the dogs to have fun, burn energy, feel a sense of achievement, improve their confidence. It can also be a great way to enhance your communication and bond with your dog.
It’s a recreational sport for you and your dog to enjoy together or, like I said, your dog can use their natural instincts.
All dogs can benefit from agility paddocks
Fun Agility is for all dogs!! Large and small, young and old. They learn at their own pace and also have great fun doing so!
There’s no negative reprimanding at all… it is run by positive reinforcement only.
The overall benefits of Fun Dog Agility
- It’s great exercise (both physically and mentally)
- It can be a great activity to channel some instinctive behaviours.
- It helps with their confidence and focus.

- Agility is GREAT FUN for both of you!!

Dogs need exercise
Being in an agility paddock is a great way for your dog to burn energy and it is so much fun for them. Both mentally and physically!!
Keeping your dog fit is one of the best things you can do for their health.
