Agility for Fun

 

6-Week Agility for Fun, 60 Minutes Weekly                    
 

Course Description

 
In Agility, dog/handler teams do not all participate on the course simultaneously - only one dog/handler team is permitted to work the course at a time.  Because participants have individual, consecutive turns on the course, it is possible to have teams of different levels in the same class.  Examples of Levels are as follows:
 
 
INTRO to AGILITY for FIRST-TIMERS
 
Each week dogs will be introduced to a new obstacle and learn to navigate it. 
Handlers will learn the correct names of each obstacle & how to guide the dog through it properly & safely with positive reinforcement.  Some of the obstacles to be introduced are:
Pause Table
Open Tunnel
Tire Jump
Bar Jump
Double Bar Jump
Triple Bar Jump

Weave Poles
Chute

NOVICE AGILITY for SECOND-TIMERS

Each week dogs will practice the known obstacles to improve their performance on those obstacles.
