Policy on Missing Agility classes:

While we understand that things do happen and students may need to miss a class or two during a given session, we do not offer make-up classes for agility. Due to the setup involved and the fluidity of agility training—students are always progressing in their skills no matter their level of experience—it is not possible to offer a class that would make up for what could have been learned during any single missed class. However, we do offer private sessions at the rate of $75 for a 30 minute session and $135 for a 60 minute session.


Beginner Agility

This six-week class is for students who are new to agility. Your dog must be at least 6-months old and be comfortable working around other dogs and people, and also be eager to work for yummy treats or a fun toy!

In Beginner Agility, dogs will learn basic skills that build the foundation for safe and successful agility runs, including:

-Focus on the owner.

-Introduction to jumping.

-Introduction to agility obstacles.

Because the bond between you and your dog is the most important factor in a successful agility team, our Beginner Agility Class not only teaches you how to best communicate with your dog but through one-on-one instruction and fun exercises we can help you create a powerful foundation for a successful relationship with your dog both in and out of the agility ring.

Age Requirements: This class is designed for dogs over 6-months of age.

Agility workshops

Our agility workshops are a great opportunity for current agility students to hyper focus on specific aspects of agility training to take them and their pooch to the next level.

Please see below for info on the next upcoming agility workshop.

Click here to view our vaccination requirements.

Upcoming Agility Workshops

Agility Workshop: Weaves
Agility is fun, fast-paced, and really appeals to our dogs instincts to run and jump over and through things! However, there is one obstacle that is not an instinctual movement for our dogs- the weave poles. The weave poles are often the obstacle we see dogs struggle the most to learn and maintain. Our “Weave Workshop” class is designed to teach our dogs to LOVE the weave poles. We will focus on independence, both on entries and exits, and building distance so that our dog understands: “I drive through the very last pole EVERY time, no matter where my human is.”

Dogs must be at least 1-year-old and a current agility student w/ UPTFC in order to join this workshop!

Cost: $160
Time: 3:30pm
Day: Thursdays
Dates of Class: 11/17, 12/1, 12/8 & 12/15 (No class 11/24)

***All students who register for this class must submit all required health records and complete a Training Intake Form no later than 48 hours before the start date of the class. Students who do not meet that deadline will have their reservation cancelled.***

Agility Workshop: Teeter
The teeter is hands down the scariest agility obstacle for our pups. It's loud, moves and can feel very unsafe to our pooches. This workshop is designed to break down the teeter into bite size pieces and build confidence with each step. This workshop is run like a group private session, thus we will take many different approaches to help each dog progress.

Dogs must be at least 1-year-old and a current agility 2, agility 3, advanced or masters agility student w/ UPTFC in order to join this workshop! This is NOT a workshop for dogs in puppy agility and beginner agility.
