CLASS DESCRIPTION

Beginner/Foundations: 

This class introduces a dog or older puppy to both the agility equipment and the vocabulary. Our Beginner classes use positive, motivational methods. We focus on safety and enjoyment, allowing each dog to move at his own pace, gaining confidence as he becomes familiar with each new obstacle. Dogs begin to learn the names of each obstacle ("tunnel," for example, to race through the tunnel; "jump" to leap over a jump), as well as "left" and "right" to give directions to the next obstacle. For beginners to the sport, or seasoned competitors, this course forms a solid foundation for all dogs.

The prerequisite for enrolling your dog in Agility Foundations is a Basic Manners class so puppies/dogs can get used to training around other puppies & dogs.

Obstacle Sequencing/Novice Coursework: This class continues introducing the agility obstacles at higher heights & starts sequencing 6-16 obstacles together. Weavepoles, seesaw, dogwalk, Aframe, tunnels, tire, single, double, triple and broad jumps are practiced in sequences.


Puppy Agility Foundations:

Puppies and young adult dogs will learn basic self-control to become good family companions with the ability to move on to dog performance sports, such as agility, rally, through positive games.  Basic skills include targeting, sit, down, come, stand, back up, and stay using toys and soft food rewards and dog crate or exercise pen.

A dog crate, head halter or buckle collar, interactive dog toy, soft dog treats. This class is currently taught by private lesson. For further information, call Debbie Moore at 210-378-4202.
