Beginners Dog Agility Training Course

6 Week Course

Have you and your dog gone through traditional training courses and feel like it’s time to find something more enjoyable?  A course in agility might be the perfect answer for both of you.  Agility training consists of a complex set of obstacles that you and your dog will develop the ability to complete quickly and accurately.  This introductory class will help you learn fun and creative activities to do.  While it's much more fun, the training will also prepare both of you for competitive agility contests and other competitions.

Class Duration

We will begin with a brief introduction of the owners and the dogs.  Following the introductions there will be a review of the class rules.  Then we will establish individual goals for each owner and dog team to complete during the course.  Since this class is designed to teach agility we will jump right in by working on jumps, broad jumps, weave poles, and tunnel.

After answering questions and reviewing what we learned in week 1 we will focus on a couple of specialized skills.  The two skills we will begin with is the dog walk and A-Frame.  These will help form the base for improving each dog’s agility and speed.
