Agility is an absolute blast, especially for the energetic duo of dogs and their owners. It's a thrilling dance where dogs learn to conquer all sorts of obstacles and owners become masterful guides in navigating their canine team mate safely and swiftly through the course. A word of caution though... once that agility bug sinks its teeth into you and your dog, there's no turning back!

Starting Age Gone are the days of waiting until your pup's all grown up for agility training! Now, you can dive into safe foundation work with those young ‘uns. It's called flatwork, and it's all about teaching them directions which helps them make better choices when they are ready to work on adult equipment.  Plus, we sneak in a little taste of the agility equipment – like low-grade stuff, say, flat dog walks, to keep it exciting! Suitable Breeds If your dog's got the fitness, health, and enthusiasm, they're game for agility! At our school, we're all about diversity. We've had all kinds of breeds jumping into our agility classes, from pugs to Great Danes and everything in between. Who says agility's just for Border Collies? Safety Agility can be a bit of a physical game and there is a potential risk of injury. But fear not! At McKaynine, we're all about minimizing those risks. We never push dogs too hard, make sure they're fit as a fiddle and adjust obstacles based on their experience and age. We're here for maximum fun, zero risks. Sometimes, we even recommend K9 Yoga to up their strength and lower the injury chances. Equipment & Grounds We've got the full kit – standard agility gear and nifty training aids. Our equipment is regularly checked and maintained, so your pup's safety is always on point. Our training grounds are also all grassy, level and well-kept to keep things safe and sound. Competitions No pressure to be the next agility champ! You're welcome to enjoy our agility classes just for the social buzz with your doggo. But hey, if you're itching to compete, we've got you covered. We often hit up shows together for a groovy fun day out. Our focus isn't on winning, but we've had some awesome results, with many dogs snagging top spots and qualifications. Instructors Classes are run by Dene le Riche, our agility guru. She's not just any trainer – she's a PetFit Pawsonal Trainer (Bronze), so your pup's physical needs are in good hands. Plus, she's a licensed agility judge with the Kennel Union of SA, so you're always up-to-date with the latest agility know-how. Assisting Dene is Cathryn Meyer, who's also a multi- dogsport enthusiast. They're the dream team!
