CLASS DESCRIPTION

Beginner/Foundations I: 

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. This class is taught by Chris Meyers and Debbie Moore.

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. This class is taught by Chris Meyers and Debbie Moore.

Masters/Advanced Coursework/Sequences: this class continues to work to advanced the skills and practice needs to compete in AKC 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. These classes are taught by Helen Rhodes, Steve Larrison, Chris Meyers & Debbie Moore.

Skills & Drills: this class focus on handling skills, lines, speed, and intro to international skills taught by Courtney Moore

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