Our canine companions are incredibly gifted with incredible mental and physical

attributes. When these skills are not exercised dogs will often engage in undesirable

behaviour such as digging, chewing and excessive barking.

Canine sports provide a healthy outlet for a dog's energy - plus it's a lot of fun!

Dog Sports
While we do train to competition standards there is no pressure to compete with your dog - many of our handlers simply enjoy the activity and the social aspect of these classes for them and their dogs! McKaynine is famous for being “non-breedist” and provided a dog is fit and healthy (and they enjoy the sport of course), there is no reason for a dog’s breed to bar them from a particular sport. We’ve had Dachshunds and Great Danes doing agility and Jack Russells doing manwork. As long as the dog enjoys it, it’s all good! Please note that in most instances a certain level of obedience training is required before gaining admittance to the dog sport classes - this is to ensure that you gain maximum value from these classes and don't find them overwhelming. Generally we require a CGC Bronze level to have been achieved prior to admission into the sport classes. We offer a variety of Dog sports - click on the buttons below to check it out...
Agility Tracking Working Trials
As per all of our courses and classes, we do not offer KUSA gradings. We are a training school and hence provide the training for the handler and dog to be able to enter such KUSA events if they so wish. Our gradings are conducted in-house for two reasons: a) to ensure that evaluations are as consistent as possible, which helps us to refine the syllabus and ensure that the value from your training time is maximised, and b) to ensure that people do not feel forced into competitive sports which they may have no interest in. We are more than happy to provide a formal letter stating which levels have been completed at McKaynine should the handler require this. If a handler would like to grade for any discipline both at McKaynine and at KUSA shows, we are happy to provide details of upcoming KUSA shows. Entry at the KUSA shows is typically just for grading i.e. it does not include any training.
