Agility Training

We have created this program based on client feedback in order to provide a way to continue your training and building a bond with your dog beyond your typical obedience classes.

In our agility program, you can work at the pace and comfort level that works for you and your dog. Class sessions are 7 weeks each. Each level may take more than one session to complete based on the individual dog and humans. Read more about the Agility Levels below.

Agility Level 1

For dogs who are new to Agility, this is the starting point! Our agility program works by progressing through the training levels as you and your dog master each skill. Once you've got a good foundation with the Level 1 goals, you move over to Level 2!

Level 1 Goals include Equipment Goals such as basic jump, tunnel, barrel, and table skills; Human Goals such as recognizing issues (confidence, safety) for your dog; and Training Goals such as stay/wait, recall, and targeting skills.

If your dog has agility experience and you aren't sure which level to start at, please contact us and we can help!

Agility Level 2

Once you and your dog have reached all your Level 1 Goals, we go on to the next phase!

Level 2 Goals include Equipment Goals such as jump grids, various tunnel entries, hoop, barrel, and table confidence; Human Goals such as handling with crosses; and Training Goals such as short off-leash sequences, advanced recall, and targeting skills.

If your dog has agility experience and you aren't sure which level to start at, please contact us and we can help!

Agility Level 3

Level 3 Goals include Equipment Goals such as safe and confident performance of obstacles at height and introducing the teeter; Human Goals such as warm up/stretching/massage skills; and Training Goals such as performing obstacles in sequences, start line lead outs, and distance work.

If your dog has agility experience and you aren't sure which level to start at, please contact us and we can help!

Agility Level 4

Once you and your dog have reached your Level 3 goals, you are ready to begin course-running!

 

Level 4 Goals include navigating an intro-level agility course safely and confidently. This will include performing obstacles, off leash reliability, handler skills, and more.
