Queenstown Dog Agility Club

Queenstown's only Dogs NZ affiliated agility club - agility for fun and competition

Welcome

We are all about dogs here at QDAC, focusing mainly on dog agility training, and helping people build great relationships with their dogs.

Dog agility is about having fun with your best friend. It's about speed and accuracy as your dog runs through tunnels, over dog walks, jumps A-frames, see-saws and more.

We offer classes and support in every stage of your agility journey from foundation to competition, so whether you want to build a better relationship with your companion or want to compete, we can help.

Foundation Class

Our next foundation class begins Saturday 6th of July at 10am,  

Book now as spaces are limited!

Agility is a great way to have fun with your dog, while also ensuring you and your pup interact well and your dog learns to follow commands. The pathway into agility is to complete a four-week foundation course to introduce you and your dog to the equipment and basics, and then if you are interested you can join the club and continue to train on a weekly basis. 

Congratulations to our two junior members!

Jess and Sarah, two of QDAC’s junior members, competed at the South Island interschools champs on the 8th of June. Jess and her dog Zoom won both the experienced agility and experienced jumper titles. Jess also picked up a 3rd in experienced jumpers with her second dog Flare. Sarah, having her first time out competing, came second in open jumpers (competitors are assigned a dog at random and have 10 minutes to learn how to run it). Jess got 3rd in the same class with little Nugget, a border collie x papillon. Between the two girls they gained enough points to take the Top Schools trophy back to its rightful home at Wakatipu High School.
