Agility for Fun
6-Week Agility for Fun, 60 Minutes Weekly
In Agility, dog/handler teams do not all participate on the course simultaneously - only one dog/handler team is permitted to work the course at a time. Because participants have individual, consecutive turns on the course, it is possible to have teams of different levels in the same class. Examples of Levels are as follows:
INTRO to AGILITY for FIRST-TIMERS
Each week dogs will be introduced to a new obstacle and learn to navigate it.
Handlers will learn the correct names of each obstacle & how to guide the dog through it properly & safely with positive reinforcement. Some of the obstacles to be introduced are:
Double Bar Jump

Each week dogs will practice the known obstacles to improve their performance on those obstacles.

Here or Close
Pause, Wait or Settle
