These classes are specifically designed for teams just starting out in agility, but we also encourage experienced handler/new dog teams to allow young dogs to build confidence and focus. All classes are based on positive reinforcement. We require students to take the the classes in order as each class builds upon the one preceding it. After completing these classes your team will be ready for Handling Agility which focuses on longer sequences and preparation for competition.
