Canine Agility Association
of Nova Scotia


Canine Agility is the training of a dog to negotiate an obstacle course. It is "a game; a diversion, amusement, fun or enjoyment experienced". Agility is a wonderful way for people to experience another side of their relationship with their dogs and to improve their dog's confidence, skill levels, and self image.

The Canine Agility Association of Nova Scotia (CAANS) was incorporated in 1992 after six months of hard work by a small group of dedicated individuals with a common goal - to secure a facility and equipment where the sport of dog agility could be enjoyed.

Today, CAANS is a non-profit organization with approximately 80+ members. We host four AAC sanctioned agility competitions (trials) each year and have hosted the Nova Scotia / Newfoundland Regional Championships.

CAANS rents the UDSC facility in Mount Uniacke Nova Scotia for training.
