Intermediate Agility

When?

Tuesdays, 7:15– 8:15 PM

Next Session: April 23 - May 28, 2024

Description

This series of drop-ins expands on the skills learned in an introductory agility class. More obstacles are introduced, and a higher level of precision is required. This is a great class if you want to prepare your dog for agility trials or competitions. Emphasis will be on control, safety and fun; this course isn't a contest or a race!

Training Prerequisite: Dogs must have completed both an introductory obedience course and an introductory agility course. Dogs must be at least 1 year old and be of sound body and have good joints and muscle tone.  

What to Expect

Each drop-in Agility Session will provide the opportunity for participants & their canine partner, with instructor feedback, in a variety of Agility Courses of increasing levels of difficulty (10 – 20 signs), to achieve the goals of:

  • Perfecting the approach and navigation through the various agility obstacles
  • Progressing through longer courses of ten to fifteen obstacles
  • Teaching the dog to associate obstacles with verbal cues, allowing the handler to direct the dog to the appropriate obstacle at the appropriate time
  • Teaching the handler how to most efficiently and effectively guide the dog through the course.
  • Fostering a sense of teamwork and cooperation between dog and handler
  • Having fun with your canine companion

Next Steps: Dogs who attend these drop-ins may also enjoy courses in rally obedience or scent work. In addition, these drop-ins can lead to competing in formal agility trials and competitions on a city-wide or regional level.
