Agility Classes & Seminars  

Agility is a wonderful mix of speed & precision, independence & teamwork, focusing on dog training skills and handler finesse. It is fun and exciting and you can do it! Without a solid foundation, dogs and handlers cannot excel in Agility, and they can get hurt. We work on activities that prepare you and your dog to do agility safely, confidently and with clarity. Whether you want to compete or just do agility in your backyard, we will get you started on the right paw!  Agility is the fastest growing dog sport in the United States.  Let's get started!
