We will practice basic handling, jumps, tunnels, tippy boards, weave poles, and more.
This class is great for anyone interested in getting started in the sport of agility or anyone looking for a fun class to keep their dog mentally and physically active.

*The class fee is $180 for 6 consecutive (unless otherwise noted) 45 minute - 1 hour classes.
*Class is capped at 6 students.
*Dogs that bark, growl, or lunge would not be good candidates for this class. Private training or reactive dog classes would be more helpful for these dogs.
*The first class will have a 15min orientation, so dogs will either need to be crated in your vehicle, or come to class with a stuffed Kong, chew, or puzzle toy to keep them busy durring the orientation.
