Come on out and have fun with your dog!

Beginner Classes

Intro to Agility
Dog and handler teams will learn the basic commands for and how to negotiate the agility obstacles. Dogs must be at least 9 months old. The goal is for the canine partner to learn how to negotiate most obstacles on their own. Instructors: Wanda Usher, Linda Stimson, Sue Tetanich
Prerequisites: Your dog MUST have a sit, stay, come, and is friendly towards other dogs and people.


Intro to Agility II
Intro to Agility II will continue to grow the dog's understanding of jumps and tunnels and begin working on the contact equipment (dog walk, teeter, and a-frame). Additional jump types (spreads, long jump, wall) will also be introduced. This class will strive for proficiency on all equipment and teams will begin running short sequences.
Prerequisites: Successful completion of Intro to Agility I within the last year or have approval of the instructor.

Intro to Agility III (3 weeks)
This short 3 week course will provide guidance on ways to continue to grow your individual obstacle skills (jumps, tunnels, contacts) to prepare you for techniques and handling classes in the future. Instructors: Deirdre Luttrell, Julie Neer, Juli Martin, Cindy Floyd
Prerequisites: Successful completion of Intro to Agility II and consent of the instructor.


Starters Classes

Basic Handling
This class will focus on handling skills that are needed to be successful in agility. You will likely use these skills for your entire agility career. We will be learning basic handling moves in small sequences with just jumps and tunnels. Instructor: Randy Hunter

We will explore the rules of the games, handling, and game strategies. This class is also a trial prep class. There will be a "judge" along with ring crew and other positions. All courses will be Starters/Advanced level courses. Instructors: Jan Jones Guz and LeAnne Meyer
Prerequisites: All dogs must be able to do full height contacts. Weaves are preferred but not required. We will not be addressing obstacle performance issues.


Skills and Drills, No Frills
In this skills and drills class we will be working various agility challenges and connection. We will be working with jumps, tunnels, and weave poles. Instructor: Sheila Ross

Masters Classes

Masters Handling
This class is intended to challenge masters-level teams with courses that require the handler to think about the most efficient and comprehensive path for the dog. Each class will allow teams to run full courses of both Jumpers and Standard style, with the option to also practice skills used in games classes such as Gamblers and Snooker. Instructor: Danielle Scott
