Beginning Sports Classes are for dogs and pups who have completed a basic manners class or the equivalent.
Introduction to Agility - Obstacles
4 Thursdays begins July 30th at 6:30 pm Cost: $75
This 4-week beginning class focuses on safely and gently introducing your dog to the common obstacles found on agility courses, and introducing you to the basic rules and dog-handling skills needed to pilot your dog from tunnels to jumps. Each week will feature 3-4 different obstacles. This class is for dogs of all breeds & will be taught on standard equipment according to (mostly) AKC Regulations. Once a dog-handler team completes the course, they’re ready for Agility II.
Class requirements: Permission of instructor required. Dogs must be current on vaccinations. If your dog has aggression issues, or would be severely stressed by a group setting, consult with the trainer before registering!
Dancing with Your Dog: Canine Freestyle
4 Mondays begins July 27th at 6:30 pm Cost: $75.00
Whether you want to improve your heeling, learn some cool tricks or just deepen the bond with your dog, Canine Freestyle is a wonderful way to explore new training horizons. Why? Because:
You + Your Dog + Music = Magic!
Spin. Twirl. Leg weaves. Create a whole routine--or just heel to your own drummer with your dog. Find your beat to the music, and your heartbeat with your dog!
Class requirements: Permission of instructor required. Dogs must be current on vaccinations. This is an intermediate class suitable for dogs of all ages who have completed any basic, CGC or agility class and are comfortable working in a group setting.
