“Drop-In Agility” Body Awareness & Basics Sunday @ 9:00 AM

Prepare your dog for agility by starting with the basics.  Safe for puppies!  In this class we will start at the ground floor, helping the dogs learn all about their body and where to place it by breaking agility handling down piece by piece.  We will expand upon your dog's foundation of basic obedience by adding additional skills to allow for more precise handling on the course.  We will also introduce some of the basic equipment like the tunnel and A frame.


“Drop-In Agility” Beginners/Novice Sunday @ 10:00 AM

In this class we make the leap from rookie to pro with on-leash obstacle introductions and basic combinations (Beginner), to off-leash agility handling and the addition of more advanced obstacles (Novice).  We will work on each obstacle based on you and your dog's comfort level and tailor our approach accordingly, balancing both group exercises and individual time and attention.


“Drop-In Agility” All-Stars Sunday @ 11:00 AM

Does your dog already know all the obstacles?  What an All-Star!  Bring your agility dog and test your skills on a specially prepared course.  The focus turns to complex handling skills and maneuvers on course.  Together we will discuss approach before you try your hand at running the latest weekly challenge.  Courses may include all obstacles and full height hurdles based on your dogs size and athletic ability.
