Why Dog Sports?

Before dogs became family pets, they were selectively bred for different jobs and purposes based on their natural traits and instincts. Fast forward to now and many of these behaviours are seen as 'undesirable' in our modern day lives. 


Instead of trying to supress these behaviours, we should be empowering our dogs with the opportunity to channel their natural instincts in a controlled and constructive way so that we and our dogs can live fulfilled and happy lives together.

''Emma is hugely encouraging of dogs and handlers, offers practical advice and support and helps the dogs and handlers develop our skills. It is amazing how tiring a young, fit dog finds the activity but it also works for my older one who loves having a job she can do.''
