What is Agility? Agility is obstacle racing for fun, exercise, confidence building, control, and/or competition. In agility, a dog demonstrates is agile nature and versatility by following cues from the handler through a timed obstacle course. The course has jumps, tunnels, weave poles, and other obstacles.
Will My Dog Be Able to Do Agility? Puppy, beginners and advanced courses are fun and increase control and confidence with your dog:
In Puppy Foundation, your puppy will build confidence, learn self-control, develop drive and become familiar with agility equipment.
In Beginners, your dog will learn all the obstacles. Beginner dogs are on leash and the course is structured to build confidence in both your dog and you!
In Contacts and Weave Poles your dog will learn how to master the weave poles and contacts.
In Agility Games, a new agility game (such as Snooker) will be played each week.
In Intermediate, you learn handling techniques.In Advanced, we focus on course running.
In Competition, we help you become successful competing in agility venues. (The Competition class is limited to students that are actively competing.)
