Fun agility classes
« on: April 14, 2011, 18:19:56 PM »
Does anyone know of a fun agility class in the Caerphilly/Pontypridd area? I've found two in Caerphilly but they seem very serious and I think Billy and Charlie (previously Cheeky Chops) could cause chaos! ;D

What about 1-2-1 sessions at cwm farm, caerphilly (just off Blackbrook Road) - you can just go yourself or with friends in a small group when you want (or at least Emma can do it). I do the odd lesson there with my dogs (well not ruby now) with Emma the instructor there (she's also with caerphilly dog agility club but they have boarding kennels and a working  farm/livery along with agility rings set up all the time) - she's very kind about my inability to work out left and right when am runnign around, LOL

I can PM you her phone number if you like.

Could you pm me the number too please, I think Harry would enjoy agility, he can certainly jump!
Would anyone be interested in a small group session?

That would be great if you could let me have the number. I wouldn't mind coming as part of a group but it would have to be in the evening or at the weekend :)

18 months old as its too much for their growing bones - you can do certain equipment earlier but often best to do obedience training 1st

There's another instructor who can sometimes do them up at the same place if Emma can't always do them.

Thanks Penny, Blue has passed his first obedience class and had a lovely certificate to prove it (I have no idea how  :rofl:)  18 months is so long, i know he would love running through tunnels and jumping over little fences. nevermind he will have to continue make do with eating my remaining furniture for extra entertainment until he's a big boy  ;D

We have been twice now to Emma for a 1:1 (30 min). Harry loves it has no problem with the jumps and even likes the tunnel which was scarey at first, I think I have the most problem keeping up with him  :rofl: Great fun for both of us - and he sleeps on the way home  ;D
Emma is based near Caerphilly and is happy to do group lessons should anyone be interested.

I always have the problem of working out my left and right (when you have to change sides depending on which way you go round), lol - have been known to trip over my own feet when I have to swap round
