A fast paced obstacle course for dogs, it challenges both handler and dog to be fast and efficient. In this class we build a solid foundation of both handling and obstacle performance. Build you dog's confidence as well as giving them an appropriate outlet. Whether you are just starting out or continuing on to learn more about the sport, we have a class for every dog!  For our beginner classes there is no prior training required, though we do encourage each team to complete a basic obedience course prior to enrollment; for our intermediate and advanced agility we do require completion of beginner agility or instructor approval prior to enrollment.
