Agility is a fun sport for you and your dog but it requires specific obedience skills in a highly charged environment. While dogs may have great skills in their home, on a walk, or even in obedience classes, the agility ring has a new and exciting buzz where dogs have to go from zero to sixty and more importantly, come back down to zero. They must learn patience and relax until it is their turn. In this course, you will challenge their obedience and the curriculum focuses on the team’s working relationship. Learn fundamentals of agility such as heeling on both sides, steering your dog with your body language, post-turns and front crosses, how to properly signal a jump in extension or collection, and start-line stays followed by excited forward motion. The final class we will introduce to fun sport of nosework, where dogs do what they do best…sniff!
