Agility Foundations

Lay a strong foundation for a balanced canine athlete during this six-week program.

Develop the bond and focus your dog will need to be successful in any sport while learning basic agility skills that promote fun and safety. Learn how to motivate and calm your dog, creating an on/off switch that will help you in dog sports and everyday life. 

This course concentrates on developing an agility handling system so you and your dog can navigate an agility course.  Bar and tire jumps, tunnels, ramps, and conditioning equipment will be introduced in the last 2 classes.

Class Details:

The cost is $200 tax included. A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve a spot. The balance of $150 is due when the class starts and is also non-refundable and non-transferrable.

Class is subject to being postponed if minimum number of students is not reached before the start date.

Your dog should have a fair understanding of basic obedience behaviours including polite walking (head halters & harnesses allowed), name response, settle on a mat, sit, etc… Your dog should be comfortable and capable of working around other dogs.

It is recommended to have completed a group basic obedience class prior to participating in Agility Foundations. If you are unsure if your dog is suitable/ready for this class email 
[email protected] (with a detailed description of relevant information on your dog), or a short meeting can be arranged if necessary (at private lesson rate, $30/15 mins)

Breeds – As long as they are in good physical shape, this class is suitable for most breeds and sizes of dogs.

Puppies – This class is suitable for puppies over the age of 5 months. Running is minimal, sessions are short and jumps are very low, so it’s safe for their developing bodies. This class is more of a mental workout than physical.
