Description

What is the training for?

This masterclass is for puppies or adult dogs who are an agility novice or are under 12 months old and want to learn the groundwork basics before starting agility at 12 months old. No experience necessary and it is designed to teach all the elements of an agility course, with low impact, and training the fundamentals. Each stage of the gymgility course will be broken down into bite size chunks so dogs and owners can train and work their dog through a fun gymgility course.

Gymgility has been designed to offer a unique low impact doggy gym crossed with low impact ground work agility. Its great way to improve your dog's listening skills, improve their training and a great form of exercise.

We cover

  • Tunnels - how to approach and train
  • Contacts - how to start and finish safely and familiarising dogs with different surfaces
  • Age appropriate jumps and cavaletti
  • Training moving surfaces 
  • Movement around and through obstacles
  • How to plan and work through a course with speed and accuracy
  • Ready, steady go skills
  • Recall skills 
You can do this as a one off, or over a number of sessions. The more you do, the more your puppy or dog learns and has fun!

Where?

Classes are held in a secure grassed paddock at the Blue Cross Rehoming Centre in Ipswich.

What to bring to class:

  • Flat collar or harness (Choke chains, prong collars are not permitted)
  • Standard lead (not extendable)
  • Lots of yummy treats cut into small pieces. Thinly sliced hot dogs are great for training
  • Poo bags
  • Please bring your dogs vaccination certificate to the first session you attend or email a copy to [email protected]
  • Please dress for the weather conditions, to ensure you and your dog are comfortable throughout the session. We train in all weathers. REMEMBER, there’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes!!!!!!

Water and water bowls are provided, but if your dog prefers their own please feel free to bring that as well. We recommend not feeding a morning meal, or at least reducing it, as the training is reward based and their tummy’s will fill up quickly!!!

Helping animals in need through training

We are delighted to be training at the Blue Cross. Best Behaviour Dog Training support the rescue dogs with financial contributions for the use of the space as well as giving the Blue Cross rescue dogs a space in every class so they have time out of kennels, and interaction with dogs and people whilst they are waiting to find their forever home.
