Agility Classes:

Agility is an exciting sport in which you and your dog work together to navigate an obstacle course with speed and precision. The benefits of agility include physical and mental stimulation for your dog. It is a great training experience whether you want to try something new with your dog, get some exercise, or go on to compete for ribbons and titles.

Puppy Agility Foundations

This class is designed for puppies 4-8 months of age.

Handlers will learn to work their puppies from both the right and left sides and learn targeting skills. Handlers will also learn how to play, motivate, and reward their puppies appropriately.

Puppies will interact with fun objects such as ladders, tippy boards, perches, cones, and planks in a safe and fun manner. They will also learn to be comfortable walking on different obstacles, have fun going over low jumps, and through tunnels; and to follow you, the handler.

This class is designed to be low impact and low endurance for growing bones.

Next logical class: Intermediate Agility II. However, all dogs and handlers do not progress at the same rate. Please keep in mind that different breeds of dogs have different maturity levels, which affect their learning rates. Another factor that affects your dog's progress is the time and effort that you, as the trainer of your dog, put into the teaching of the skills presented in the class. Handlers who practice, even just a little every day, the skills taught will usually see their dogs progress more quickly. You should always consult your instructor for guidance in determining the next logical class for you and your dog.
