This is a trial to see what interest there is around here, and the folks from Lochaber are being very generous with thier time and effort as they will be bringing all their equipment up and down each time from Spean Bridge.

At the moment they are charging £5 yearly membership plus £5 per agility session.

They accept any size of dog any breed,  as long as they are fit and well behaved.

Dogs must be at least a year old to jump, younger dogs over 9 months old can try other equipment. There are no upper age limits as long as they are reasonably fit and not suffering from disabilities like hip dysplasia.

This is a fun sport for dogs and handlers, and can be very social, if you have a dog and you are new to the area this is a great way of meeting like minded people.

    Thank you to everyone who came to the Dog agility on Saturday, if we can keep the interest up even on the wet days, there may be a chance of continuing after October. It is a lot of hard work to train a dog, but Saturday you excelled yourselves as handlers, it is so good to see the dogs having fun and trying their hardest to work out what you are asking them to do. It is a very energetic afternoon for the dogs, some were getting tired by the time we finnished PLEASE feel free to take your dog away for a rest if they need it, (you know your dog) they will go on until they drop, it’s up to you to recognise fatigue.
