Be Your Dog's Best Friend and Join a Dog Club


Some helpful tips to enjoy life with your dog.


Have fun with Agility Dog Sports

Agility dog sports are fun to both watch and compete in. The dogs love it!

The competition is based on a set course of obstacles with the challenge to clear all obstacles in the best possible time. This demands teamwork, precision, speed and faultless performance.  

There are many types of Agility Sports for you and your dog including Rally O, Sledding, Lure Coursing, Dancing with Dogs & Gundogs Trials.

So join an Agility Club and show off your dog’s skills while mixing with other dog lovers
