John Reid

I started in agility in 1993 as a student then instructor with Canine Capers in Atlanta, one of the first agility training groups in the southeast.  In 1997 I co-founded Sirius Dog Agility Training Center in nearby Decatur building it into one of the largest and most successful agility organization in Georgia.  I managed Sirius and instructed its Masters level classes until I moved to the Charleston area in 2006. 

My first agility dog was an English Pointer, Carl, the first agility titled Pointer in the country (maybe the world!), who was a conformation champion and titled in obedience.  My next team-mate was Border Collie, Edge, the first Triple Agility Champion (USDAA, AKC, NADAC) from Georgia, who finished 13th and 14th at two of the AKC national Championships.  My next agility partner was USDAA Agility Dog Champion (ADCH) BC, S'more, who while competing at the 2009 AKC Nationals finished 2nd in the Jumpers Round and earned a spot in the Challenger Round.  S'more also won a 4th place finish in one of the rounds of the 2010 AKC Nationals.  He made the Pairs Finals at the 2013 USDAA Cynosport World Championships and finished his career on the podium of the 2015 Cynosport Veterans Showcase. 

I started SCoot Dog Agility to provide the highest level of instruction,  state of the sport equipment and the best Agility Facility to the Lowcountry.  Only positive training methods are allowed, any and all dogs are welcome, and coaching is provided from beginners to the top levels of national competition.

I tried a number of agility classes, but at Scoot and John Reid, we have progressed to a level I never thought possible with such a nervous and shy dog. Great!

69 thousand people have looked at this! S'more is one fine looking dog. I continue to hope that he will get a great handler!

I have spent tons of time and energy into training my 2 year old little energy bunny. We have done several training classes: Obedience levels 1-3, Scent Work

My girl has 2 Novice legs. Do you have a class for her. She’s very precise and takes direction well. Just needs more speed. I’m new back in the area.
