Who are we?

In 2016 Hilma sat down on a coaches meeting of a local dog club in Mynämäki, Finland. She had an idea of a childrens group. Bit of brainstorming with colleques and the 1st ever #agiliikkari started in Mynämäki that autumn. Children loved it. Essi, Hilma’s then 5-year-old daughter, was the youngest in the group but had been running several courses with Shiba “Hupi”. These Agiliikkari sessions created the frame for the Funna ideology. You can see Essi on several pictures and training material we publish, now handling her own Swedish Vallhud ”Mera” or her mum’s Working Kelpie ”More”.

A bit later, a small group of passionate parents sat down to talk about the future of agility and #agiliikkari. That day the Funna Oy was founded to take over the consept and to start the revolution.

Values like agility for all and lifelong learning brought us together. We embrace the joy of a dog sports and the companionship we have with our dog. We are creating the future for agility. Through children. With you.  We provide high quality coach training for agility instructors and atheletes as well as FunnaTM lessions for the children. All FunnaTM coaches are sertified and their lisences are updated annually.

 We welcome new members to our Funna® family from all over the world. Join the Funna revolution!
