Beginners class is a 16-week course designed to introduce dogs to agility and the performance of agility obstacles. Time will also be devoted to developing basic foundation skills such as stay, down, sit, come and come to hand. The class will focus on teaching handlers how to communicate with their dogs and gain a greater understanding of how dogs learn. Handlers will be expected to practice exercises during the week outside class. While the exercises generally do not require home equipment, students may eventually consider acquiring some minimal equipment such as a jump, 12’ plank, and PVC weave poles. Handlers should review the list of items required for participation in the class at “What to Bring to Class".
NOTICE: Class size is limited to 20 dog/handler teams. Dogs must be at least 9 months of age before the first class meeting. Class cost is $175
