We have ongoing and year-round Agility classes that can take you through advanced training for competition or that can just enable you to just have fun with your dog. We try to keep our classes at a 5-to-1 student/teacher ratio.
Your dog may start agility at 9 months of age; however, your dog's bones are not fully developed at that point, so for the safety of your dog, he will be restricted from participating in certain exercises. If your dog is younger than 9 months, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to ask what class you could do in the meantime to prepare your pup for agility.
- Your dog should have basic obedience skills including the ability to respond to basic commands like sit, down, stand (easy to teach if you don't already know it), stay, coming when called, and walking on a loose leash. All of these are with treats...as long as your dog is willing to work for food, you should be all set!
If you have any questions about whether your dog is ready for agility, please contact us.
There are several levels of agility:
Please note that we occasionally skip a week due to conflicts with other events. Therefore the 6-week course may not be held during 6 consecutive weeks. Your instructor will inform you if she will be away during your class.
