School Was Never so Much Fun
I offer a number of sports foundation classes, and I am the instructor for several levels of agility classes. The in-person classes are taught outdoors so the six classes may not be consecutive weeks depending on weather and local agility trial schedule.

Six classes. This is a class for dogs one year and older. We will cover the foundation games for building both straight (ahead or behind) and lateral distances, obstacle independence, directionals and discriminations. You will need (or have access to) three jumps and a tunnel (weave poles are optional). Prior knowledge of the obstacles is not a prerequisite as we will be shaping and refining their performance.
AGILITY BEGINNER I: JUMPS AND TUNNELS
If you're looking to train your dog in agility this is a great class to follow FUNdamentals. This class introduces the teams to handling skills, basic equipment, agility training games, and the foundation for the contacts and weaves.
AGILITY BEGINNER II: CONTACTS AND WEAVES
This is a six week class. In this class we build on the foundations of first class. The dogs will master all the basic agility obstacles including contacts, jumps, tunnels and weaves. Mastery of the weaves will depend on home practice. Class is limited to dogs over the age of one year, and the Agility Beginner I is required.
