Agility - Beyond the Basics

Agility classes are for the dog who has completed the foundation - beginning basics 6-week class.  Private lessons are for anyone interested, who has timing conflicts, or a difficult dog and wants to prepare the dog for a class situation.

Preparing for larger sequences and competition typically takes several months of the next step - Agility Beyond The Basics. Once you have finished your foundations, you tend to stay with the group class you are with for several months. Each month's skills builds on the one before until you are running longer sequences with more and more obstacles.  Safe obstacle performance for the dogs and accurate handling techniques for the owner is the concentration after you finish your foundation 6-week course.  People tend to get the fever of competition and start to trial in the local shows once prepared and ready. Some do not want to compete, they come to the weekly class loving the bond agility creates with their dog.
