The Orchid Isle Dog Agility (OIDA) club, located on the east side of the Big Island of Hawaii, was founded in October 2006. Our club is a non-profit organization with the primary goal of having fun with our dogs through the sport of dog agility. We welcome new members as active participants in the sport of dog agility, as well as supporting members who just enjoy watching!
We work with other local dog agility clubs to further the sport on the Big Island by offering "just for fun" activities as well as sanctioned agility trials to interested participants. We have also established a seminar series which brings some of the world's top agility instructors to the island twice a year. We also do demos at local events.
The fast action of dog agility makes it fun for both participants and spectators, with entertainment provided by the dogs, as they don’t always follow directions!
The Club welcomes dogs of all breeds, mixed as well as purebred. Handlers are welcome at all levels of experience, from beginner to advanced, including junior handlers from age 12 and up. Click on the "Agility Training" tab on our menu to find dog agility classes near you.
Through the sport of dog agility:
1) To promote fun and healthy recreational activity for dogs and their owners.
2) To promote responsible dog ownership and the development of working partnerships between dogs and their owners.
