Introducing the Club
In brief, you should know the following about us: our club was established in 1985 and has brought forward scores of agility winners since. We do not take ourselves too seriously, but we do take having fun seriously.
If you are looking for breed ring craft or competitive obedience training, sorry, we can't help. Agility and having fun is our only focus. A sense of humour, a bit of dedication and a carvan or big car is helpful and owning a dog can be an advantage.

Beacon Agility Dog Training Club is based at the excellent grounds and facilites of the Veseyan Sports and Social Club at Little Hardwick Road, just off the A452, between Aldridge and Streetly.
Training is informal. That, is you train your dog in the style that suits you. There is little formal training of the handler though we do occassionally invite guest trainers. If you feel the courses laid out are too tough or too easy members have the freedom to set out their own set pieces or course.
If you need formal training for a young puppy, or control of the dog, or basic navigation of agility equipment then our sister club Veseyan Obedience for Agility, run by our previous Chairman Traci Gaunt can help. Contact Traci 01922 624401. or 07727 280327 (mobile). Training night is Tuesday (not August). For daytime training try Happy Hounds, Sutton Coldfield 0121 686 6301 (up to 7pm) for puppy classes, starter agility and Good Citizens Scheme up to gold standard. For indoor agility training with Jackie Gardner contact Smartpaws
Altenatively for pet obedience (Sunday pm) then try Sutton Coldfield & District Dog Training Club, contact Chris Hickman 0121 378 1454, or Lichfield and District Dog Training Society contact Mrs B Smith 01543 674238.
