Dog Agility Ontario was first conceived in 2012 by Sandy Currie, Gary Kollar and Tammy Kollar.
Our first AAC Sanctioned Trial was held in May 2012.
Between May 2012 and February 2018 we ran 52 AAC Sanctioned Trials including over 20,000 runs. In this time period we operated out of facilities in both Flamborough and Barrie.
At our February 2018 trial we announced that Sandy Currie was leaving Dog Agility Ontario. Sandy had recently moved from Bala to the Kingston area. The travel to our trials in Barrie was very taxing.
Tammy and Gary decided to continue hosting Dog Agility Ontario trials. Our 53rd AAC Sanctioned Trial was held in June 2018 at our new in-door trial site, Mayrich Kennels, near Fergus.
Between June 2018 and February 2020 we held 12 AAC Sanctioned Trials at Mayrich Kennels, more than 4,000 runs.
Due to COVID-19 we cancelled all trials between March 2020 and October 2021 (20 months).
On November 20 - 21, 2021 we resumed hosting trials.
Our 2022 trial season began in May 2022 which marked our 10th Anniversary of hosting agility trials.
Our first trial in 2023 will be on March 18 - 19.
We continue to offer things like:
- e-mail distribution of course maps on the morning of each trial day
- Smartphone gating application ("Agility Gate")
- Seasonal backdrops for photos
Pictured below are Tammy and Gary Kollar with Santa at our November 2022 trial.
Our goal is to run AAC sanctioned agility events in a fun filled, stress free environment in a professional manner.
