The new Faculty boasts completely new, full size and Kennel Club Regulation competition agility equipment and two completely new Kennel Club and British Flyball Association full size Flyball Lanes with twin hole boxes.
But the project isn’t simply about providing training classes, the new Faculty hopes to be at the forefront of Canine Sports techniques and innovation, with a high quality team of coaches and trainers.
In addition to encourage everybody to become involved in canine sports, a new flagship “Agility & Flyball For All!” funding scheme has been set up, whereby all Children under 18 years of age and any adult on a low income, can receive FREE Agility or Flyball training at the faculty.
Gary Gregory, Chief Executive of the trust said; “We are exceptionally excited about the opening of the new Canine Sports Faculty, it has been nearly a year in the planning and there has been many hurdles to overcome, our grateful thanks to Sir Robin Radford MBE, the Big Lottery Fund and of course our fantastic team of Trustees, Committees and Volunteers.”
A Big Lottery Fund Spokesman added; “We are delighted to be able to partner and fund this exciting new faculty. This is the first time we have become involved in a canine sports project and we hope that lots of people will come along and use the new facilities. We live in an age where it is increasingly important for everybody, especially children, to become active and this canine sports faculty provides top class facilities, free to Children and adults on low incomes. We feel that providing the facilities provides the local community with a great, fit, fun and friendly alternative to traditional sports and gives local dog owners fantastic, affordable, fun, facilities on their door step."
