R+ Dog Training - Siberian Husky running

Canine activities

Training for dog sports and activities keeps your dog mentally and physically fit 

Train to compete, for the field, or just for fun. R+ Dog Training uses the same techniques of positive reinforcement as in basic training so that you and your dog can learn in a safe, relaxed environment.

Going out for walks is only part of ensuring a rich and fulfilling life for your dog. Exercise needs to be balanced by mental stimulation.  Training for an activity is especially good for working breeds such as a gun or herding dogs because dogs benefit from using their minds as well as their bodies. You don’t have to compete; just learning something new can be fun for you and your dog. Booking an Activity Training Course with R+ Dog Training is an excellent way to progress from the Rock Solid Rover Course.

R+ Dog Training for an activity always ensures that your dog will be fit enough to undertake your chosen activity safely to minimise risk of strain or injury throughout your dog’s life. The course provides a programme of exercises that will take you from warm up to the chosen activity, followed by a warm down.

If you’re new to activity training, choose a taster course which provides an introduction to preparing for activity training and guides you through the initial steps to begin your chosen sport.

Activities include:

  • Agility
  • Showing
  • Scent and retrieve work
  • Obedience
  • Rally … and more
