The sport of agility is the canine equivalent of equestrian riding events. Guided by their handlers, dogs navigate through a course of obstacles. As an introduction to Agility, the above Workshop is designed to introduce you and your dog to the obstacles that include jumps, tunnels, contact obstacles, A-Frames, see-saws and weave poles.
These obstacles test the dogs versatile and agile nature and help shape self confidence. Training methods are positive and motivational. The workshop is a low-key, low-equipment introduction to the agility equipment. Handlers learn fundamental handling skills, safety for the dog, and training techniques; it is also great for socialization!
You don't have to want to compete in agility trials to participate in this sport. Most students start agility classes just to have fun with their dogs. Some get "hooked" on it and do go on to compete.
Practicing agility with your dog benefits your relationship in many ways:
· provides mental and physical exercise
· builds your dog's trust in you
· increases your confidence as a handler
· creates a sense of teamwork
· fosters a bond between you and your dog...
...all while having fun!
