Classes

In our classes we focus on maintaining a fun and safe learning environment for all participants. We offer a wide variety of classes from beginner to advanced levels.  Knowing the importance of developing and maintaining a strong understanding of the foundation skills, we work to ensure each individual team has mastered these skills well.  Once the teams build a strong foundation we can turn our focus to enhancing the skills based on the needs of each individual team.  Join a class today and learn to work as a team with your dog!

BEGINNER

At the Beginner Level we introduce teams to the individual obstacles, using food, toys & games to keep the team motivated.  We place a strong emphasis on having FUN to build your dog’s confidence as we teach them the basic skills necessary to navigate the obstacles. Handlers learn to guide and direct their dogs using both verbal and non-verbal cues.  You will learn why clear and consistent communication is key to success in agility!

ADVANCED

This class builds on the foundation skills you learned at the beginner level.  While we continue to use rewards to keep the dog engaged and motivated, we also begin to ask more of the dogs in between rewards.  Teams are introduced to sequences, the dogs learn to continue working between rewards and that the reward will eventually come. This helps to minimize the “one and done” mentality.
