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 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.

If you feel that your dog wouldn’t be comfortable doing Agility with other dogs, we also offer 1-1 Agility training.
