INTRO TO AGILITY!

The class you’ve all been waiting for! This is a super fun new class that will introduce you and your dog to the sport of agility and give you all the foundation skills you need to understand the sport. We’ll help you build handler focus, increase your communication skills, and build confidence in your dog. We’ll show you how to warm up and cool down your dog, and teach you exercises to get you both familiar with agility obstacles such as jumps, tunnels, and planks. Participating dogs need to have basic training in polite manners and must not be aggressive to other dogs or people. Manners 1 is required. MDI class is limited to 4 dogs. 

Class meets for 5 weeks

Tricks & Games Class

Let’s get your dog learning some cool new skills! Class will be tailored to the individuals in it and what tricks they already know (so everyone’s learning something new!) Tricks might include: take a bow, sit pretty, crawl, roll over, hoop jump, play dead, go to sleep, perch, wipe your nose, back up and more! We’ll use luring, shaping, and rewarding to teach your dog new tricks AND we’ll spend time each week showing you fun games to play with your dog using things around your house to help strengthen your bond AND have fun while being at home together this winter. Dogs are eligible to test for AKC Trick Titles throughout class.

Class meets for 5 weeks, Cost $140
