Gosport Agility Club provides agility training in a friendly and fun environment, and is designed to help you and your dog have fun and
bond with each other, thus enhancing your relationship with your dog.
Agility for your dog is a way for you and your dog to keep fit, and have some fun, especially for those dogs with boundless energy.
We welcome owners who want to have a go at agility or practise their agility - in Gosport Fareham and Hampshire.
Dog agility is all about team work, your dog will learn to look to you for instruction and this focus carries through when you are out walking with him/her.
Our agility training takes place in our private field in Alverstoke, Gosport, with a safely fenced off arena. Our agility sessions are delivered by our approved agility instructor, who has been teaching, and competing herself for many years in agility. All tuition is undertaken with reward based training, no harsh handling verbal or otherwise is tolerated. Different breeds are catered for with our trainer understanding the capability and needs of different breeds of dog. Agility equipment is provided to Kennel Club Standard.
Our Gosport Agility Club has Beginners, Novice and Advance classes.
Free public car parking.
September - March - Saturday classes only.
Late March - September - agility classes are held twice a week starting at 6.30 pm (an additional evening may be available).
For owners who don't wish to sign up for a course, but would like to come along and have some practice fun agility sessions - these will also be available on some Saturdays throughout the year.
Please view our calendar for dates, times and information.
We also offer 1-1 agility training.
If you have any questions or would like more information about our dog agility classes please contact us.
Bark2school Agility Dog Club was asked to put on an agility display for the Mayor of Gosport, Lyn Hook, before she leaves office.
We would like to say a big thank you to Councillor Lynn Hook for joining us for a fabulous day. Lynn had a front row seat -
and reported that she thoroughly enjoyed watching all the dogs and their owners. Thank you Lyn.- and thank you for all your hard work
throughout the year for Gosport.
Our owners and their dogs gave an impressive display of tunnels, jumps, weave poles, A-frame - and Dog walk to the Mayor, and the public. We were very fortunate that The News -Portsmouth covered this event with some fabulous pictures and editorial. Thank you to The News.
We are very lucky to have brilliant responsible dog owners - working and having fun with their dogs.
Thank you all for joining us and for all your hard work.
Thank you to Margaret our Agility Instructor, Mark our pre-agility Instructor for all their enthusiasm and encouragement.

"We would highly recommend “Bark 2 School” puppy socialisation classes. Ros and Emma always made us feel welcome and answered any questions or concerns we had.
There were no more than five puppies per class, which allowed for a friendly and relaxed environment to learn about all aspects of owning a puppy.
Ruby loved her time at puppy socialisation, especially playing with her new pals!
We are really looking forward to attending Junior dog training classes soon – can’t wait!"

"Bark2school is a very good and effective place to take the new four legged addition to your family,
they are friendly helpful and always at hand to help with anything!! Myself and Radley attended a socialisation class
one Saturday and it was just doggy made, we then began to attend bark2school where it's only allows five puppies at the
most and this gives it a more friendly feeling. I had such great time there and Radley enjoyed meeting over puppies too!
Would recommend them to everyone as they have everything from knowledge, professionalism, sense if humour and the most important thing welcoming to you and your new puppy and making sure you feel just as important as the next!!"

"Me and Scooby tried another puppy socialisation class before trying bark 2 school, I didn't realise
how poor the first one was until I met Ros and Emma, their knowledge and advice is valuable, they have the time to
talk to you and help sort out the smallest of issues. Scooby was able to meet other puppies and learn how to behave
with them. He loved his time there and we are looking forward to starting the junior class next week.
I loved the fact that there are only 5 puppies per class so it is not overwhelming and everyone gets a chance to have a go at everything. Thank you Emma and Ros, I would definitely recommend you to everyone."

"I get immense pleasure in seeing my dog Poppy improve week on week, I feel I am also personally learning a lot from both Ros and Emma at
classes. I wish the days away until the next class............ it is brilliant and I will certainly be going through your next stage classes.
Can't thank you both enough for being so friendly and putting on the best class ever!!!
Would also like to say: - If you have a problem with you dog or just need to generally improve on training who should you call... Bark2school!! They are the loveliest people and fantastic at their job. I personally can't recommend them enough. Anyone serious about working more with your dog, who is prepared to work on the tasks and tips given then call them. They are also on face book."

"My dealings with Bark2school started before I even bought my Beagle puppy. I was investigating the breed; I found them online and
emailed them asking their advice on Beagles as a breed as I had read not only some wonderful things about the breed but some worrying thing
also. My email was returned the same day and the explanation was amazing and so friendly and professional and instantly put my mind to rest and my
search for a Beagle resumed. We collected Buddy our Beagle on 1st November 2011, we were prepared for him with crate, toys treats etc. Although
nothing prepared me for the
heartbreaking howling which went on, when we tried to put him to bed that night. The next morning feeling tired and fraught and desperate to do
the right thing I called Ros. She reassured me and gave me some really good tips on settling him and they really worked.
We also attended their puppy socialisation classes which were fantastic, and so full of health information, as well as some invaluable tips on toilet training and preventing separation issues. I am now attending the junior class with Buddy which is equally as good. Ros is always there to give support when I have needed it. Thanks girls, I am a better dog owner because of the amazing job you both do."
