Beginning Dog Obedience Level II

This class is for dogs that have completed a basic beginning level training class. The handler understands the commands and has fairly good control over the dog, with the dog walking by the handler’s side. The skills learned in basic obedience will be used and handlers and dogs will be challenged to further their skills. Participants will work towards teaching the dog off leash work. This will vary depending on the dog/handler team and their skill level.

Dog Agility
Running a dog in an agility trial is the ultimate game for you and your dog. In agility, a dog demonstrates its agile nature and versatility by following cues from the handler through a timed obstacle course of jumps, tunnels, weave poles and other objects. It’s an activity that strengthens the bond between dog and handler while providing fun and exercise for both. This class will be an introduction to the fun in the world in agility. Dogs must be one year of age and must have completed level one and level two in obedience training. Dogs must be current on their shots and must be under reasonable control of the handler. Teams may be excused if not able to maintain reasonable control. This class will be strictly outdoors and taught on leash for the safety of the dogs.
