Prerequisite: Free Agility Assessment
Our agility foundation program includes two in-depth 6-week sessions to introduce all the agility obstacles and teach critical skills you and your dog will need to navigate an agility course!
The Obstacle-Focused Session trains your dog how to jump, send to a tunnel, and begins their weave pole training. You’ll also teach your dog how to navigate over the a-frame, teeter, and dog walk obstacles. This session provides in-depth training on obstacles to ensure your dog’s safety and build their understanding of how to take obstacles on the agility course.
The Handling-Focused Session trains you and your dog how to communicate about which obstacle is next on the agility course. Your dog will learn verbal cues for turns and how to send to an obstacle at a distance. While you’ll learn how to show turns and execute crosses (i.e., side changes) on an agility course.
To complete the program and move up to Beginners, you and your dog will complete two 6-week sessions of this class to ensure the team has completed one obstacle-focused and one handling-focused session.
