Agility is a fast paced, super-fun game you play with your dog! In
this sport, the handler has a limited amount
of time to get their dog to safely navigate
a set of obstacles in a predetermined order.
The obstacles can include jumps, tunnels, a
chute, weave poles, A-frame, dog walk, teeter-totter,
and more! The dog must safely complete the obstacles
in a specific order and within the time limit.
in agility requires proper training, as it is a game of physical
skill, control, patience and, most of all, teamwork between
handler and dog. Agility is a race against the clock, but accuracy
is the first requirement.
dogs will be introduced to many of the obstacles
in agility such as jumps, tunnel, and
open weaves, in a safe and controlled manner
to build your dog's confidence and skills.
The correct end position for the contact equipment
(teeter, a-frame and dogwalk) will be introduced
The skills needed to successfully negotiate
the obstacles and the handling skills will be worked on weekly.
Attention, focus and motivation will be practiced as the team
builds confidence in an atmosphere that centers on learning
skills while having fun. By the end of this class the dogs will
have a good working knowledge of many of the obstacles.
