Swift Agility Dog Training
Founded by Joanna Turner
The dog training is run by Joanna (Jo) who is an Agility Club Approved Instructor, First Class. Jo began competing in Dog Agility in 2007 and has been an instructor since 2012. She is an agility enthusiast who aims to encourage safe development, enjoyment and a high level of proficiency in the sport of dog agility. She also has experience in training a wide variety of dogs and their handlers.
All dog training methods used are positive and reward based, with an emphasis on fun and enjoyment for both handler and dog. With the recognition that one size does not fit all, Jo tailors training to reflect her strong belief that dogs and their owners should be treated as individuals. She keeps abreast with modern training techniques and attends local and national training seminars, providing her with the skills to facilitate people and dogs to learn successfully together.
