Agility

Agility is a dog sport in which a handler directs a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy.  It is a great way to have fun, bond with our dogs and get exercise in the process. If you are interested in learning more about agility check out our class offerings.

Beginners Agility
 

Interested in taking your dog's skills to the next level all while having a lot of fun? Consider beginners agility! Agility is a fantastic way to improve communication and your working relationship with your dog. Beginner's agility focuses on solidifying basic foundation skills amongst distractions in an exciting and supportive environment, and introduces you to basic agility handling, agility equipment, and short sequences.

Your dog must have following basic obedience skills for this class:

  1. Ability for the dog to attend and respond to the handler in a group with other dogs and humans.

  2. The dog's response to basic cues such as: sit, down, wait, come, and response to name.

  3. Loose-leash walking with directional changes.
