The Paws4Fun Agility club is a not for profit, member run dog agility club located near Kemptville, on the outskirts of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The purpose of the Club is to promote the competitive and recreational sport of canine agility through training, demonstrations, fun matches, social events, and sanctioned trials; to encourage responsible dog ownership and safe participation; and to educate the public on the sport of agility.  Our club is open to all dogs, purebred and mixed breed, as is the Agility Association of Canada (AAC).

 

Agility classes are offered at all levels from puppies, beginners, novice, intermediate and starters to masters.

Starters, Advanced and Masters handlers are offered the opportunity to test their ability at any of the Agility Association of Canada (AAC) sanctioned competitions hosted by the club throughout the outdoor competition season (June to September). Our trials offer events for Starters, Advanced and Master level dogs. Competitors come from all over Eastern and Southern Ontario and Western Quebec to visit and compete at our weekend trials which offer standard agility events as well as the four games at Advanced and Masters levels.


Paws4Fun also offers Rally-Obedience classes, based on the Canadian Association of Rally-Obedience (CARO) rules, for all levels from beginners on up. Handlers may also test their abilities at CARO sanctioned trials held at our outdoor venue in the summer months (June to September).

The 2020 Outdoor Agility Season at Paws4Fun

Paws4Fun Agility was open for the 2020 outdoor agility season, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was far from business-as-usual, with changes in place for the safety of our members, volunteers, students, competitors, and our dogs:
  • Prior to entering the Paws4Fun venue, everyone was required to sign a specific COVID-19 waiver, that is included in registration for all visitors, classes, events and trials held at Paws4Fun. 
  • The fields were open for members, and non-member Green Fee Payors, book practice time using the Booking Calendar.
  • Agility Classes were held outdoors at the fields, with limited class size.
  • Limited entry Sanctioned AAC Trials for 2020 were held in June, July, August and September. 
  • Paws4Fun participated in "virtual" leagues, where competitors use the courses as individuals, videoing and submitting runs to be judged remotely:
    • Monthly outdoor agility events for the VALOR league were held as scheduled, and have completed for 2020.
    • Semi-monthly outdoor NDAL agility league events where as scheduled, which is continuing into the winter of 2021 in our indoor Arena.
    • Paws4Fun participated in the AKC Virtual Rally pilot program, and has completed for 2020.
