January 13th Classes are Cancelled!!

Agility Classes with Kathy and Craig

New Schedule Is Below!

We will hold the last Foundation Class on January 20th 2018!
I will schedule the next series of Foundations as soon as I get enough people interested - please email if you would like to be in the next round of Foundations on Saturdays!


Registration form for Saturday:  Word     PDF


Monday remains Competition at 6:15, Tuesday remains Beginners at 6:00, Wednesday remains Intermediate at 6:15. No Monday class Christmas or New Year's Day!  



 All classes are $15.00 per dog/handler.  Same handler, second dog on same day is $10.00.  *Foundations will have a one-time charge of $5.00 for the handouts.


Puppy Foundations:  As below but only for dogs under a year of age.  Some puppy training is added


Foundations for Agility:  This class is great for dogs 1 year and older who want to learn the basics for a good foundation with their handler.  Attention to handler, having a fun time with your handler in spite of the many distractions around an agility setting, how to have fun learning and trying new things with your handler.  The dogs love this class!

Intro to Obstacles:  This is where we get your dog on the obstacles in a safe and non-threatening manner.  Positive reinforcement is used throughout all of these classes.  Agility training is great for dogs’ confidence even if you do not have a goal of competing with your dog.

Obstacles 2 and Beginner Handling:  More obstacle training

 Beginner Agility and Handling:  Short sequences, will include handling sessions and more obstacle work, focus on weave poles and teeter will be available, will adapt class to individual needs.

Intermediate/Competition Class:  Will make you think and work!
