About Agility

Agility is a dog sport where the handler directs a dog around a course of about 20 obstacles against the clock. Obstacles include hurdles and tyres, tunnels, seesaws, ramps, and weave poles. Dog agility began in Britain in the late 1970s and spread to almost all of Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the US. Agility in Australia started in 1984, and it became a national sport within two years. Dog agility is based on the equestrian sport of showjumping and, just like in showjumping, dogs are required to perform obstacles correctly and within the time allowed; there are penalties for knocking down jump bars, refusing obstacles, and not performing them correctly or in the right order. The fastest dog with no penalties wins. Agility is the fastest growing dog sport in the world, and if you and your dog get into it, you’ll understand why. It’s harder than it looks, but it’s a great way to have fun with your dog and develop the great relationship that comes from working together as a team.

Having been a member of the SCDTC since 2005, I cannot speak highly enough of their commitment and professionalism in the pursuit of happy well trained dogs and their owners. Many friendships have been made over the years for both dogs and humans. Social events are stimulating and well catered for. Come Join Us Ray, Yvonne & Fleur Tyrman

My family and I have been members of SCDTC for around 2 years. We chose SCDTC as the volunteers / trainers are very professional, approachable and very compassionate. Before we became members they explained that all dogs must be microchipped, fully vaccinated and you must clean up after your dog. Membership is very well priced for the service you get for your money. On the first day of training the trainers explain the legislation. Our oldest dog Bert who is a big dominant German shepherd has severe socialization issues with other dogs and by attending the club for socialization and obedience classes he improved significantly so he can be around other dogs comfortably. Our other two dogs Pebbles and BamBam white swiss shepherds also attended socialization and obedience classes since they were fully vaccinated and we have never had a issue with our dogs- they love to be at training! The club make the obedience classes fun for both handlers and the dogs. Trainers are always there to ask questions, get tips on training techniques. Trainers are always there well before classes start and after class to ask questions or raise any concerns you may have with your dog. The club also does agility training and flyball training. Our white swiss shepherds are involved in agility training and they love training! The club organizes regular breakfast on the  beach at MM beach Port Kembla in the warmer months, members and their dogs meet at the beach we have a delicious breakfast, socialize all the dogs and go for a swim with our pooches. It’s a fun morning out for all. In the cooler months the club organizes camping trips away with our dogs, we go bushwalking and socialize with all the dogs, have a bbq dinner and breakfast in the morning. It’s a great couple of days way. I recommend South Coast Dog Training Club to anybody wanting to socialize, obedience train, flyball train and agility train their dogs. It’s great for human socializing too. Amber French

I joined the SCDTC seeking help with my stubborn, snappy mini schnauzer and was well satisfied. Expert advice from the instructors taught me stabilizing exercises and how to control my dog’s behaviour using positive and negative consequences. Now she responds to my commands and my confidence has improved as her handler. Knowing how to conduct the exercises makes training at home a playtime we both enjoy. In the Obedience classes the dogs learn quickly from repetition of exercises and by imitating other dogs and it’s a great opportunity for my little dog to socialize with much bigger ones. I notice a different attitude when she sits beside me, looks up and goes into ‘training mode’. I feel so proud to have a stable well mannered and happy companion when she heels on a loose lead in public, and at the vet’s where she stands still on the scales and for examination. I give full credit, and thanks , to the instructors of the SCDTC. Not only do the dogs learn to be obedient, but their owners learn to be responsible for their pets in public, which benefits the entire community. Wendy Laharnar
