Paige & Lucy - Great Dane
"Previous to joining Swift Dog Sports we had taken a basic dog obedience class with another business and had not gotten very far. She knew her basic commands, but rarely listened to them. We signed up for Swift Dog Sports Introductory Agility Class in Fall of 2010. We found the small class sizes made for a great learning environment. The instruction was tailored to meet the individual needs of each dog in the class. Lucy did not have a very strong recall, and listened to commands at her own convenience. After taking the classes; Lucy has a 100% recall, and can perform agility off-leash in class with other dogs around with no issues. We can leave our front door open and no longer have to fear her bolting out of it. I found that since joining, Lucy reads me a lot better and watches me extremely close in and out of class to figure out what she should be doing. She has since learned many other behaviours, and knows many tricks. Often, when people find out I do agility with Lucy they can't believe it, but with the right training, it's possible with any dog!

Charlotte (Junior Handler) & Wilbur - Papillon
" Classes with Tara have helped kick start our journey into dog agility. Every week is something new and she can pick out exactly things you need to work on or ways to change your handling specifically for your dog. Classes are a fun and welcoming environment and also a great opportunity for you and your dog to meet people interested in agility as well, Wilbur loves it! "
Diane & Watson - Lagotto Romagnolo
" Watson started agility training in July 2015 at the age of 8 months. We first signed him up in the puppy obedience/agility combo class and he has since graduated onto the advanced agility class. Watson has made tremendous progress in overcoming some of his insecurities around new things. His confidence in his abilities has grown and he is continuing to make progress on his confidence. each week. Watson's favourite obstacle is the tunnel! "
Krista & Begbie - Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever
" I enrolled Begbie in the Swift Dog Sports puppy class when he was 6 months old. My goal was to increase his ability in his confidence and drive as he was unsure and not very confident in certain situations. Our work with Swift Dog Sports and Tara has helped us to meet this goal and more. Begbie is now 2 years old and has earned multiple dog agility titles in both CKC & AAC agility. "
Bruce & Levi - Pyrenean Shepherd
" Levi and I have attended agility classes for a couple of years. I believe it has made a stronger bond between us. His confidence is higher now and the classes have built a higher trust between the both of us. I recommend taking your dog to Swift Dog Sport's classes, you'll be surprised how quickly your dog will progress "
