Schedule, Fee and Registration Process

Foundation Agility - New Class 9:30am Tuesdays starting 11/11/14

Class Description: For adult dogs with some obedience background, Foundation Agility is the right place to start building a working relationship with your future agility dog. Every top-level competitor will tell you that a strong foundation in self-control, mutual trust, self-confidence and fun is a MUST for success in agility. Those who simply learn the obstacles and begin trialing without a solid foundation in the basics will develop training issues somewhere down the road and then they will start working on foundation.

Canine Good Citizen Test to be held December 17 - Wednesday - from 6:30 - 9 pm. Must sign in by 7:30.

Members - $5

Impulse Control - New class starting Dec 4 - Thursdays - 5:50pm!

Designed for dogs who want what they see and they want it now! The class will teach dogs to leave and ignore all sorts of distractions and check in with their handler rather than go for whatever they see.  Skills taught are sit and down stay, leave it, attention to handler, polite greeting of people, loose leash walking around distractions, staying on a mat or place, and control play.  This class is for dogs that lack self control, not for reactive dogs.

Prerequisite: Basic Training or permission of the department head

Tricks - New class starting November 24 - Mondays - 8:15pm!

Teach that dog some new tricks!  Many of the skills taught in this class may be very useful such as park it (sitting between your feet) or putting their toys in a box but mostly, this class is just about having some fun! Tricks your dog can learn include waving a paw, licking their lips, weaving through your legs, and balancing a treat on their nose until you release them. Class size is limited to 8 students.

Prerequisite: Basic Training or permission of the department head
