Our agility classes begin on the 10th, 11th and 13th. Beginner classes will be announced shortly.
Most of our ongoing classes are full and limited to our currents students. We occasionally offer beginner classes, but our focus is to keep our focus on our students. To guarantee a beginner spot, registration and payment are due in full two weeks prior to the class starting.
Our January classes are FULL!
BEGINNER I AGILITY (6 x 1 hour classes, maximum 6 dogs per class): An introduction to the different agility equipment and to the foundation behaviours required to perform agility. This course is for dogs over 6 months of age who have taken at least a basic level obedience course or equivalent.
BEGINNER II AGILITY (6 x 1 hour classes, maximum 6 dogs per class): This course will build on the foundation behaviours learned in the Beginner Agility course. The handlers will learn how and when to execute front and rear crosses, find the line and lead out pivots. Dogs will continue to perform on all apparatus with more work on the see saw and weave poles.
INTERMEDIATE AGILITY (6 x 1 hour classes, maximum 6 dogs per class): Handlers will learn to incorporate the moves that they learned in Beginner II into short sequences of agility obstacles. Dogs will progress to full height equipment with the exception of the see saw.
PRE-STARTER'S AGILITY (6 x 1 hour classes, maximum 6 dogs per class): This course will build on the Intermediate class. Short sequences will be run each class using the various agility equipment. An introduction to AAC games classes will be presented during this session.
STARTER'S AGILITY (6 x 1 hour classes, maximum 6 dogs per class): This course is a preparation for those handlers that want to compete in agility. Dogs should be competent on all obstacles at full height and weaving. Classes will consist mainly of sequences and courses. The different AAC games will also be explained and run so that handlers understand the rules.
ADVANCED AGILITY (6 x 1 hour classes, maximum 6 dogs per class): In this course, the students will learn to analyze a course and read the dog’s lines so that they can make the best handling choices for their dog. They will also learn new skills and perfect their existing skills to make their handling efficient and clear.
