Agility Classes

Here at Pets2impress we also offer a fun agility program to help give your dog some much needed stimulation and fun. Agility has many benefits. Some of these include: Burning of energy, helping conquer boredom, an increase in self esteem for any nervous or anxious dogs, an increase in awareness and alertness, an increase in health and fitness, increased trust and confidence, improved basic commands and flexibility. As well as being great fun it also helps improve the bond between you and your dog.

We offer drop in sessions on Saturday mornings between 10am – 11am at our facility (Unit 4, Mitre Place, South Shields, NE33 5BD), where you and your dog can make full use of the equipment and have all of the help and advice required from one of our trainers. This is a fantastic way to spice up your dog’s day by offering them the important mental stimulation they need as well as being great fun. In order to attend your dog must be over 6 months of age, fully vaccinated and they must not have any health issues preventing them from doing agility.

***Please note - If one of our staff members deems your dog to be aggressive towards other dogs, you will be politely asked to leave***

If you feel that your dog wouldn't be comfortable doing Agility with other dogs, we also offer 1-1 Agility training. You and your dog will get the run of the Agility arena to yourselves for a full hour, with the added advantage of getting the full attention of our Agility instructor. This will be held every Saturday from 12 until 1, and will cost £25 per session. Please note - this is not a drop-in session. Places must be booked beforehand to avoid double-booking.

If this is your first time coming to our fun agility classes you will need to complete an application form and sign a copy of our terms and conditions. This can be done prior to you coming by downloading the form here (Word Document). However this is also something you can do on the day which will take approximately 5 minutes.
