AGILITY – HAVE FUN – ENJOY THE CHALLENGE
Agility involves the dog jumping over a variety of hurdles, weaving through upright poles, running across walks and finding a way through tunnels.
If you are looking for an alternative exercise to burn off excess energy in your dog, while at the same time enjoying some quality time together, then agility may be for you.
Agility training at BDOC is conducted in a safe environment at ovals opposite the clubrooms in Victoria Park on Sunday mornings.
