Young Kennel Club Agility Training Day

The Young Kennel Club will be hosting a training day at Rutland Showground to get members ready for the International Agility Festival competitions. It’s ideal practice for those competing but any member is welcome to apply for training.

Further details

  • The agility training day will take place during on Wednesday 10 August and open to all members aged 6-24 years
  • There are two sessions available:
    • Morning – Grade 1-4 Dogs
    • Afternoon - Grade 5-7 Dogs
  • A maximum of 14 members can attend each session, and then split into two groups of 7 depending on dog height. Each group will spend an hour and a half with each trainer, swapping halfway through after a break therefore having time on both an agility and jumping course. Members will have a chance to walk the course and run it initially, before going into some analysis to help prepare them for competition days
  • Each session will cost £30 per member
  • If the member is under 18 years of age then one accompanying parent/guardian must also attend at no charge
  • This is a training event and will take place outdoors. Please make sure you’re comfortable and wear appropriate footwear and clothing. Also please note that lunch is not provided, please bring food and drinks with you to this event
