Foundation Agility Class Lessons
A new Foundation class will start Thursday, March 30th at 6:00pm and run for six weeks. Please email us at email@example.com if you are interested in attending or you may register below. You need to create a Handler Profile to register.
Foundation training is the most important part of training an agility dog! Without a good foundation, your dog will not be able to learn the necessary skills for performing the obstacles and running courses successfully.
Foundations class is where we learn fun tricks that will eventually turn into “real” agility behaviors such as weave poles, turns, and contact behavior. It’s a great way to build a fantastic relationship with your dog, and the better relationship, the better your agility skills! This is one of the joys of positive rewards based training. Agility is really just engagement, chasing, impulse control and tricks taken to a whole new level. We will be doing action based games such as chasing and playing with toys, impulse control games that make staying fun, and learning a lot of tricks. Whether you go on to learn more advanced agility skills, just want to build your dog’s confidence, or brush up on manners and tricks in a new way, you’re sure to learn something new in Agility Foundations Class.
Classes are enrolled in 6 week sessions, the cost is $165 for this session.
Bring your dog’s favorite toy, a lot of tasty, treats (suggestions-string cheese, tiny cut up hot dogs, tiny bits of cut up cooked meat, or soft store bought treats that your dog goes CRAZY for), a treat bag that you can wear, and a mat or portable crate to your first class. A clicker is optional. Flat collars or harnesses only please, no pinch or choke chain collars.
The classes will be taught by Laura Hartwick.
