We strive to provide a fun, safe, supportive, learning and competitive environment that allows you and your dog to develop into the best team possible!
What is Dog Agility? How do I get to play?
Dog agility is a timed obstacle course for a team that consists of a handler (that’s you!) and a dog. The handler directs the dog through a predetermined pattern of obstacles. A course usually has 12-18 obstacles, like tunnels, jumps, tire jumps, weave poles, and the big “ramp” obstacles (teeter, dog walk & A-Frame). In a trial / formal competition, the dog runs the course off-leash, without food or toys and the handler can’t touch the dog. The human half of the team relies on movement, hand and body signals and their voice, to tell the canine half what to do next.
