Agility is an exciting sport that's great for exercise and can improve the bond between you and your dog. This class teaches the purpose and basic techniques of agility. Many people feel that their dogs would love to do agility; now is the time to find out! We hope you'll agree that agility is a great way to push the limits of your dog's athleticism, speed, and endurance.

  • Learning the proper way to enter and exit an obstacle
  • Progressing through shorter courses of less than ten obstacles
  • Staying tuned into the handler at all times, fostering a sense of teamwork and cooperation
  • Working in an environment with other dogs around
  • Developing the bond between handler and dog by working together toward a shared goal
  • Other areas are covered as well, with any questions answered.
