Is your dog happy, gets along well with other dogs, energetic, enjoys running and responds well to direction? Agility may be you and your dogs new interest!

Agility is one of the fastest growing dog training sports in the country which consists of a handler directing a dog through an obstacle course in a race for both time and accuracy.

Agility Foundations focuses on introducing obstacles and teaching key behaviors your dog will need to navigate an agility course!

You will learn all about agility obstacles, how to handle your dog on equipment and the basics for guiding your dog around an agility course.

Rally-O is a highly motivational obedience class which is enjoyed by both you and your dog! Hand and voice commands as well as body language are all encouraged in this fun sport. Rally-O is a sport in which you and your dog complete a course of designated stations (10-20 depending on the level).  Each station has a sign with a diagram and text describing what is to be performed.
