DOG AGILITY ARENA

Hartpury has recently opened its own dog agility arena. The new equipment includes an A-frame, a dog walk with poles, flat and cylinder tunnels, weaves, a see-saw, tyres and jumps. Students on all courses can access new learning opportunities thanks to the new dog agility facilities through lectures and practical sessions in the arena. These enable them to gain a deeper insight into canine training, fitness, health and safety and the careers available in this area of the industry, with several animal graduates having gone on to work as dog trainers. It could also provide material for their own projects.
