Introduction to Agility


Class Limit 8


The successful completion of Manners Obedience, or an equivalent basic obedience class elsewhere. All dogs must be able to work around other handlers and dogs on and off leash.  They must be able to stay in either a stand, sit or down until released by the handler (this is usually no more than 10 seconds).  They must also be able to come when called around distractions.

Class Overview

Prepares each dog with the basic skills they will need to enter into the world of agility.  This class will focus on the flatwork necessary to build skills in agility.  No agility equipment, other than tunnels and flat boards, will be used.  Dogs and handlers will learn shadowing, hand touches, targets and wrapping a pole.  Ladder and brick work will be used to help the dog develop rear end awareness.  Tunnel work and walking on flat boards will be introduced.  Off leash recalls to both sides of the handler will be worked on as well as start line stays.

Graduation Requirements

Dogs must be able to exhibit basic foundation skills mentioned above.
