We accept up to 8 dogs and teach you how to train your pooch thru all the standard obstacles. At the end you may not have mastered them all, but you will know how to train your pup to ace them! NEXT CLASS STARTS JUNE 18th.
INTRO 2: STEERING
You will spend more time learning to steer and send your dog to obstacles, left and right, and to the finish line, as you progress on weaves and the teeter. You will begin practicing actual trial courses.
NOVICE: GETTING READY FOR TRIAL
You will be proficient on all obstacles but may still need more practice on weaves. If you decide to compete you will choose an organization and begin practicing actual course maps and heights.
ADVANCED: TRIAL READY
You can perform all the obstacles and will work at trialing techniques, both for AKC, CPE or NADAC. We expect your dog to perform at an Intro Nadac trial.
All Group Classes are $25 per session or $150 per six-pack. Payment is expected at sign up--classes fill quickly. Your payment ensures your dogs place in class.
You are now committed to being a competitive agility dog and handler. Training will be geared for specific trials and more challenging runs on the course. We will also help plan your competitions. Held Saturdays, 10 am. $30 drop in fee.
This class is being held Saturdays 9-10 am, and Wednesdays 6-7 pm. It combines basic obedience with good manners and agility skills, as well as socialization--with puppies and people! It is $15 per session, no contract--your pup doesn't need a 6-week course, it needs constant training through 11 months old and that's what we provide, plus agility contact training.
CGC and TRICK TRAINING
We are an AKC center for Canine Good Citizenship and Trick Training and evaluations. Contact us about classes and availability.
