Capital Comets is Victoria’s original dog sports club
Capital Comets Dog Sports Club is a non profit group devoted to promoting responsible dog ownership through the sport of dog agility. Established in 1990, Capital Comets was the first of its kind in Victoria, British Columbia. Originally it was involved in a variety of dog sports, including agility and flyball, but now concentrates exclusively on agility. Capital Comets is a member club of the Agility Association of Canada (AAC), and hosts AAC sanctioned trials several times a year. The club also holds fun trials and hosts weekly practice sessions for members.
Club members enjoy providing demonstrations of agility at public events. Demonstrations are provided free of charge for charities and non profit organizations, and at a nominal cost for other organizations. Many club members and their dogs take part in an agility demonstration at the annual Saanich Fair.
All kinds of dogs, purebred and mixed breed, big and not so big, can be trained in agility and participate in trials. While the club itself does not offer classes, there are a number of excellent training establishments operating in the Victoria Area that provide group and private training at beginner through to masters levels.
The club currently have over 50 human members who train with a wide variety of dog breeds. New members are always welcome.
