Agility

Calling all canine superheroes! Can your dog leap a tall building in a single bound? Does your dog have a little extra energy to burn off? Channel your dog’s energy and athleticism with agility training. We keep it fun, safe, and easy! Classes are held indoors on a matted floor or outdoors in a fenced grass field (summer/fall classes only).

Nosework

Does your dog love to sniff? Put your Sherlock Bones to work finding hidden target scents. Prepare to be amazed as you learn to encourage your dog’s natural instincts and drive to search. Each dog searches individually, so shy dogs are welcome. Students are encouraged to bring a crate to class so your dog can relax and you can learn by observing other teams as they search.

Agility 1 (beginner)

Agility fun starts here. Your dog will love zooming through tunnels and leaping over jumps. Don’t worry, dogs are worked on leash as they learn to follow your lead around the course. Open to dogs of any age; dogs under one year will use low jump heights for safety. Dogs should be friendly to other dogs and people.

Agility 2

Comfortable with bar jumps, tunnels, and basic handling? Now you’re ready to go beyond the foundations and learn new obstacles while running short sequences and building off-leash reliability. Open to dogs of any age; dogs under one year will use low jump heights for safety. Dogs should be friendly to other dogs and people.

Agility 3

It’s time for teeter and weave pole training! Gain confidence on these two tricky obstacles as we incorporate them into longer course sequences.

Open Agility

Open Agility is a flexible program that lets you attend as many Mondays as you want during the six week session. Open Agility is available from 7 pm to 8:30 pm; you can arrive at any time and stay as long as you like. No extra charge for multiple dogs from the same household. Maximum enrollment of 15 handlers.

Dogs who are familiar with all obstacles will benefit most from this program. Open Agility is set up like a show and go, with the added benefit of critique and moderate coaching. Instructors will be on hand to offer handling suggestions to those at a lower skill level. Some weeks will offer full courses, some will offer skill drills.
