Bristol And Bath Agility (BABA) was founded by Abigail Doxford

With many years experience teaching both dogs and humans,  Abigail uses a flexible and positive approach to training. Believing that dogs and their owners should be treated as individuals, tailoring training to this end, one size does not fit all……..

Having previously worked for Canine Partners training assistance dogs, and teaching at a number of agility clubs, Abigail has experience training a wide variety of dogs and people. An educational and professional background in Psychology and Occupational Therapy (specialising in brain injury rehabilitation) has provided her with the skills to facilitate people and dogs to learn successfully together.

Abigail has supported and trained many handler and dog partnerships to achieve their agility goals from increasing ring confidence to improving performance and progression through the grades from Grade 1 to Grade 7.
