CFS venues On Line

Our on-line agility education classes are designed to help people that do not have easy access to our “live” Canine fun Sports agility classes, if you are starting off with a young dog, or if you just want a bit of extra homework. Our on line classes are designed in a modular system. You study what you want at your own pace. Choose the classes you want to do, and do your videos and lessons at a time that suits you. Each class has detailed notes, extensive video demonstrations and feedback on your progress via the videos you send to us. In most cases only basic equipment is used and can be done in a limited area.

We have helped not only the top handlers reach the top level of competition; we have also helped disabled and wheel chair handlers to great success in our sport. We have helped everyone to improve their handling and their relationship with their dog.

TO ENROLL:
Send an email to caninefunsports@westnet.com.au

I will let you know how you can make payment, and we will set up a secret Facebook group for exchange of documents and video. For those that do not do Facebook we can exchange emails or post disks. It is my intention to review all videos with 2 days of receiving them, although sometimes my life becomes very hectic with puppies, aged parents, trials and life in general. In most cases you will receive your reviews promptly.

Here is hoping we can have a lot of fun together (or is that fun, apart via the internet???)
