Flyball is a fast a furious sport for dogs who enjoy ball-chasing! The dogs tackle a set of four hurdles, hit the Flyball box to release the ball, and then bring it back down the hurdles where the next team member prepares their dog.

Scentwork covers several different sports – from scent discernment in ‘hides’ to tracking and man-trailing. All of these scentwork sports use your dog’s favoured sense – their smell. As an added bonus, dogs which are regularly scenting with you, are in general less likely to have a drive to go off hunting by themselves.
Hoopers is a new sport, which combines flowing nimbleness with speed using hoops, tunnels and barrels. As it does not have any impaction on joints, it is suitable for all dogs, including those young and old, unlike Agility.
The Club field has specialised equipment for all the above dog sports, allowing us to train to high standards.
How We Train
Most of our early focus for any sport is on confidence, engagement and drive. We want the dogs to have fun, as we can re-direct enthusiasm to almost anything!
We also need the dogs to listen to us in an over-arousing environment, so our input is extremely important to the partnership.
