Dog Agility Training can be for any dog – even if you have no interest in ever entering a trial. Not only is agility about speed and accuracy, but it also gives dogs and handlers a clearer communication system. Your dog will gain confidence as she learns to negotiate a variety of obstacles….A-Frame, Dog Walk, Weave Poles, tunnels, See Saw, and a variety of jumps. You will build a stronger bond with your dog while having fun together.
This class is designed for people who want to share the fun of agility with their dog, and may or may not be planning to enter a serious competitive event. It is suitable for anyone exploring what agility is all about.
We will work to build a team that can actually run a novice agility course together – having fun, but keeping safe. Participating dogs should have basic training in polite manners and must not be aggressive to other dogs or people. Sit Maintain and recalls are the most important skills.
Please contact the instructor if you have questions as to whether or not your dog is ready for this class. A vet-check prior to the start of class is also recommended.
