Basic Obedience is a good starting point for adult dogs and their owners. Handlers learn to use positive reinforcement while teaching basic commands. Dog safety and good manners are also important parts of this course. Includes introduction to agility.

 Advanced Obedience   Good basic obedience skills on the part of both handler and dog are a prerequisite for this course.  Off leash work, hand signals and resistance to distraction are key parts of advanced training.

This is a program designed specifically to meet  your training goals.  Whether you want to sharpen performance for competition or keep your working dog in top form, this course is for you.

Emphasis is on the skill and techniques of the handler as much as on the dog’s education.

 

Training Safety

Training Equipment

Safety is always the top priority.  Quality equipment can make the difference between a safe, fun training workout and a disaster.   Every handler should have a 6′ leash and a 20′ – 30′ long line, as well as an effective training collar.

We are open to almost any type of training equipment, provided it is humane and allows you to maintain good control of your dog.   Exceptions: No zip leashes or chain leashes.

All handlers must have the ability to stop their dog in the event the dog has ideas that run contrary to yours or safety of the class in general.  Body and facial harnesses are not recommended.

General Handling Rules

Be respectful of personal distance with other dogs.

No off leash activity without instructor approval.

Be weather safe -  Bring water for yourself and your dog.

Always clean up after your dog.

No open toed shoes or sandals on the training field.

 

 

 

 Agility is one of the most popular dog sports in our country today. If you are looking for a great way to have fun and exercise with your dog, this is it!  Watch your dog’s confidence grow as they master the obstacles and learn to run a course.   We offer individual training, giving you the entire agility course to yourself and your dog , as well as the benefit of one on one coaching.  All levels of handlers and dogs are welcome!
