Dog Agility

Advanced Obed/Intro to Agility

This class will focus on pushing obedience skills necessary for agility training and introducing dogs to many of the agility obstacles.  The first part of class will be spent on obedience – heeling and hand signals, longer stays with more distractions and longer, more formal recalls.  The second part of class will be spent on equipment familiarization.  Note – teeter totter will not be covered in this class. Prerequisites:  Beginner Obedience Graduation

Handling w/Weaves

This class will focus on foundation flatwork handling skills and emphasize weave poles. Handler focus through hand touch and change of sides will be introduced including push, pull, front cross, rear cross and blind cross.  Contact work will be introduced.  It is suggested that all participants be willing to build a boojie board during the first week or two for contact practice at home.  Instructions to build a boojie board will be discussed in first class. Not the handy man type?  Boojie boards can also be purchased ready-made at Flying Feet for $30.  Prerequisites:  Beginner Obedience Graduation and Adv. Obed/Intro to Agility

Teeter and Sends
