Prerequisite: APRB, RBF or equivalent obedience class or permission of instructor
All dogs are REQUIRED to have taken a group obedience class prior to taking Outdoor Agility Games. Participating dogs must have a solid sit, down, stay, and come behavior. If you haven’t taken Relationship Building Fundamentals, please email Beth Grooms to set up a free evaluation for permission to enroll.
This class is appropriate for dogs who are comfortable in proximity to other dogs. During this class 4-5 dogs will be out working at one time (they will be on leash most of that time but not always).
Using agility equipment as tools, we will play games that present your dog with physical and mental challenges. This is a fun way to exercise and stimulate your dog. Recall games will be incorporated weekly.
Students must bring a crate (this is NOT optional). Dogs will spend part of the class playing and part of the class resting in their crates. This teaches them to play intensely and then calm down. This class is held outdoors, so please dress appropriately for the weather. See our inclement weather policy at the bottom of this page.
This class is intended to be repeated until dogs are ready to move on to an introductory agility class.
ALL DOGS MUST BE FRIENDLY TO DOGS AND PEOPLE.
If this class is FULL, let us know you want to join – we can add another class once we have enough folks on the waitlist. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
