What is agility? Agility is an exciting sport that can be performed in competition or just for fun. It consists of a variety of obstacles that the dog and handler must navigate in the designated order and the fastest time possible. Agility at its finest requires a great bond between the dog and handler, focus, athleticism, energy and concentration.
Who should come? Agility is for owners who want to compete in agility trials or who just want to have a fun, athletic and instructive experience with their dogs. Dogs must be in good weight, good physical condition and manageable around people and other dogs.
What will we learn?Agility classes improve focus, attention in the midst of distractions, compliance, working at a distance and, of course, teach dogs how to go over, under, around and through a variety of interesting obstacles. It is an excellent activity for dogs that lack confidence since all training is done with lots of positive reinforcement. Click here to learn more about the sport of agility!
