CLASS DESCRIPTION

Performance S.T.A.R./CGC Puppy:

This group class will allow puppies to learn impulse control, body awareness, basic obedience & flatwork foundations for the sports of agility, rally and obedience in a safe & controlled environment while covering the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy or CGC curriculum. Once the CGC is completed Puppy’s May continue on the Foundation agility class.

Beginner 1/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, 2 puppy classes or instructor approval. puppies/dogs need to be used to training around other puppies & dogs.

Beginner/Foundations II: 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.

Masters/Advanced Coursework/Sequences: these classes continue to work to advanced the skills and practice needs to compete in AKC/UKI or USDAA master level competitions. Front, rear and blind crosses will be taught and used as necessary on the set course or students may choose to make up and practice a course their own design.

Workshops on Skills & Drills: focus on handling skills, lines, speed, and introduction to international skills taught by Courtney Moore

Premier Skills & Sequences: this class practices AKC Premier Class sequences and challenges. Taught by Debbie Moore.
