Agility Classes

What is Dog Agility?

Agility training is a wonderful way to release some of your dogs pent-up energy and maintain their fitness; while also exercising their brain and training them to problem solve. Dogs of all sizes, and breeds can play agility. Dogs complete an obstacle course consisting of jumps, tunnels, teeters, weave-poles, and more! Handlers direct their dogs through the course with the goal of completing it as quickly and accurately as they can. Agility is a great way to establish a strong bond with your dog, build their confidence and keep them mentally stimulated. 

Small Space Agility

Small-Space Agility is a fun, interactive class for all ages, held in a small classroom. Puppies will need to have completed a Puppy Socialization Class or equivalent. You will be introduced to the fundamentals of the sport and various equipment, such as jumps, tunnels, tires, cavelletis, cones and Cato boards. All activities you learn can be practiced in your living room. You will be amazed at what you can accomplish with your dog!

Simply register for the first class of the set!

We do not offer pro-rated classes if you cannot attend some of the class dates. When you register, you are signing up for the entire class set.

If you are having difficulty registering, making payment, or if you do not receive a confirmation e-mail, please contact us as soon as possible!

Cancellations/ Refunds:

CLASSES:

If you need to cancel your registration for any reason, you must provide one weeks notice before of the start time of the first class in order to receive a refund. If we are not notified at least one week before the start of the first class, there will be no refunds or credits issued.

If after attending we feel the class is not the right fit for your dog, we may request to move you to another class or training option.

No refunds or credits will be provided for missed classes due to required or optional self-isolating due to COVID-19.

Dog Behaviour:

If you have a dog that displays any of the below behaviours, please contact us before registering so that we can ensure you are placed in a class that is a good fit for you and your dog.

  • Leash reactivity (barking/pulling/lunging on leash towards other dogs and people)

  • Aggression towards other dogs or people

  • Anxiety/Fear towards other dogs or people

  • Consistent/excessive barking

AGGRESSION/INTENSE REACTIVITY:

We want your dog to be safe and comfortable, and due to the number of different people and dogs that come and go from classes, we are not able to accommodate aggressive or highly reactive dogs in our group classes, except Reactive Rover.

Dog Equipment:

We are Positive Reinforcement Trainers, and we do not allow punitive dog equipment such as prong collars, pinch collars, or e-collars/shock collars to be on any dog at any time while in classes (whether turned on, or not). We respect that owners may use the equipment of their choice outside of classes. However, we require that such equipment be completely removed from their dogs for the duration of the class. If you are interested in more information on positive equipment alternatives, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Flexi-leashes/extending leashes are not appropriate leashes for a class environment.

Please be sure to swap to a standard solid 4–6-foot leash (nylon, leather, etc.) for class and private training sessions.

Medical Issues/Circumstances:

If your dog is ill or injured, please keep them at home and do not bring them to the facility until they are cleared by a vet.

You are still welcome to attend group classes yourself without your dog if the illness your pet has is not a highly communicable illness or an infectious disease (such as giardia or bordetella).

If your dog has or is suspected to have kennel cough, please keep them at home until they have not coughed in 7 days; or they are cleared and deemed no longer contagious by a vet. While your dog is recovering, we ask that handlers/household members do not attend our facility, even without their dog, due to the risk of infecting other dogs.

All dogs should be current on vaccinations.

Tails of Success

"My 8-month old puppy Ripley and I participated in Vanessa's intro to agility training over the course of the summer and had such a fantastic time. The experience was valuable in building our communication and a fun activity to share together. Vanessa's enthusiasm for the sport was absolutely infectious - and we so benefitted from her knowledge of & passion for dog training throughout. Highly recommend!"
