Our Cancelation Policy: You must cancel at least 72 hours in advance before the class starts. We may give you credit for a future class, but if you cancel with less than 72 hours notice, there will be no refunds, because you have taken a spot in a class that other people are waiting to enroll in.

Intro To Agility

Open Classes:

Intro to Agility is a wonderful activity for the high energy dog. It gives the dog a "job" and many times reduces distractive behavior in the home. It has also been proven to help build confidence in a shy dog. Positive reinforcement using food or toys is used in training. Great activity for both dog and handler.

This class is open to dogs 10 months and older. The focus of this class is for the dog and handler to learn each obstacle in a safe and positive manner. The key is to build confidence, which will later lead to speed and consistency from the dog. All of the contact equipment is fully adjustable, and new dogs learn on lowered equipment and gradually increase to full height.

Lots of treats are used as well as toys to reward dogs while they learn and to keep them motivated.

Basic handling skills are learned as we begin short sequences.

No pinch, choke or electronic collars are used, and no corrections are needed!!!

This is a fun class for dog and handler to bond while learning new skills, building confidence and giving the dog a job to do!!!

Intro to Agility and Puppy Agility requires some running and twisting of the handler. The handler needs to be in reasonably good health to participate in agility classes. Your dog and puppy will be running in all the agility classes.
If you are not sure if you can participate, please call the office and ask to speak to an agility trainer.
