COURSE NAME: Agility Foundations 1

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
Our Agility courses are designed to develop a positive working relationship between you and your future canine superstar! Agility develops confidence, provides intellectual stimulation and deepens the trust and communication bond between dog and handler. Our agility program was created not just for those who wish to compete, but for anyone with any breed of dog who wants to come out to play.

This course will focus on building an awesome agility dog and handler team! Emphasis will be on targeting, engagement, impulse control and motivation through play. The class will cover obstacle and flat work skills such as cone wrapping, tire, jumps and tunnels as well as basic contact skills (plank work and low A-frame), short sequences and body awareness. Handlers will be introduced to foundation handling skills, the importance of body language and positive re-enforcement. This class is done off leash and is best suited for friendly, non-reactive dogs. Dogs must be a minimum 6 months of age as of the start of class date.


COURSE FEE:  219.00 (+ taxes)

COURSE LENGTH:  6 weeks

COURSE NOTES:  **PREREQUISITE - The prerequisite for this class is either our Family Dog Beginners (not Fast Track) or Practical Living class taken within the past year. If your dog has done basic group obedience elsewhere, and has good skills, you can attend Practical Living as your prerequisite. Dogs must be a minimum 6 months of age as of the start of class date. We do not accept reactive dogs into this class.
