Beginner Agility - START

Description:

This six week program is designed to be a foundation skills class to prepare the dog and handler for the sport of agility. Your dog should have some prior experience with basic obedience and be fairly comfortable and focused in a group class setting. We will be fine-tuning the obedience skills by working on focused stays with distraction, go to your mat, and heel work as well as tailoring these skills to what you will need for agility.

Beginner Agility is 6 weeks, and is limited to 6 dogs.

Class Fee: $250 plus HST/Session of 6 weekly classes

Additional Information:

Toys will also be introduced as a way to motivate and reward the dog as an alternative to food.

We do some tricks that are prep work for a warm up routine for your dog and to teach balance and control, including: sit pretty, weaving through legs, spinning right and left, and take a bow.

The concepts of targeting will be introduced with both nose and foot targets being covered. This is to help the dogs learn more body awareness before getting them on the regulation-sized equipment. Introductory level equipment, such as low planks, tables, wobble boards, tunnels and ladders will also allow the dog a chance to experience different obstacles and build confidence.
