Welcome to Agility Addicts, home of the AGILITY FORUM

Agility Addicts is one of the top dog agility clubs in the West Midlands. Check our Training page for class times and available spaces.



This section sets out to give some guidance on best practice dog and agility training methods. It is intended to be of help primarily to our own members, and dog owners wishing to start agility training with us. But we also hope that other visitors to the site will find these tips useful.

    • Stay - no Wait - no Stay - No! ... the importance of consistent commands
