Learn Dogsports

We have training for all stages ... from the dogs and handlers who have never even seen agility, to those gearing up for National and World competition.

Jump to:

Our instructors are actively competing at an International level in the agilty, and keep up to date on recent developments in training and handling methodologies from around the world.

We do not subscribe to a cookie cutter approach to training, but believe that every dog/handler team is unique, and must be given the tools to find their own solutions.

Above all, we believe that training should be a positive experience, and the primary focus of any training should be fun, for both dog and handler.

Below you will see the different types of training we can offer. Or contact us to let us know where your interests and needs are. That'll help us plan and schedule new offerings.

Drop-ins / Private Lessons

Cant get to classes on the day they are offered? Want a little extra help with the thing that are being taught in class? Dog need a little extra help in something that is NOT being taught in class?  Drop-ins / Privates could be the answer

  • A Drop-in lets you book the Dynamo Dogsports Training Hall to do your own personal Agility / Barn Hunt / Rally or Obedience  / or Trick training; do some Fitness work with your dog; or just bring your dog in to play with you in a safe space.
  • A Drop-in with a Private Lesson gives you private instruction from one of our qualified instructors during your drop in.

Dogsport Training Classes

We offer training at our training hall year round and cater to all experience levels.

Note:   
Due to the new Covid restrictions in Alberta,
we are not running any traditional "group" classes in December.

If you register for more than one class (no matter which classes they are) in the same set and in a single purchase order, the price is discounted as follows.

  • second class - $10
  • additional classes - $15 each

PLEASE NOTE THAT CLASSES ARE NON REFUNDABLE, AS THE SYSTEM WILL ONLY ALLOW A LIMITED NUMBER OF DOGS IN A CLASS, AND IF YOU REGISTER YOU ARE MAKING THAT SPOT UNAVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE BY ANYONE ELSE! Please be sure you can commit to the class before registering.

Note:
  • There are no classes open for registration at the moment.
  • Our next set of classes will be scheduled and put on sale here soon.

  • What people have said
    about our training:

    "I learned options and possibilities for my dog
    - not just one way to do things!"

    "Great instruction! Organized and encouraging.
    When is the next class?"

    "Wonderfully knowledgeable and supportive
    way of dealing with both handlers and dogs! We will definately be back for more."

    To our current and potential Dynamo students:

    Due to the new Covid restrictions in Alberta, and out of an abundance of caution, trying to do our part to help flatten this new curve, it does not look like we will be able to run traditional "group" classes in December.

    We will however be offering some alternatives:

    DOG DAY CAMP - you can drop your dog off for the day in our Day Camp where they can play with other suitable dogs, get a little training time with our awesome Dynamo trainers, and generally have a great day away from home.

    Even if you are currently working from home, the occasional outing away from you helps to ensure that your dog gets/stays well socialized, and does not get so used to the same routine that they risk separation anxiety down the road when that routine changes.

    SCHEDULED DROP INS - we will be posting an online calendar with extensive drop in times available in December. You will be able to choose Main Ring, Blue Ring, or Barn Hunt Drop In times, and you will have exclusive use of those rings/equipment.

    1/2 hour drop in $20/person. You can book max two people together, and the second person will only be 1/2 price ($30 total per 1/2 hour)

    SCHEDULED PRIVATES - the same calendar will be available for booking privates. These are one on one sessions with the instructor. Contact us for information at dogsport.org@hotmail.com.

    We hope that these options will allow people and their dogs to still have some training time options, while still doing our part to try to help get things back on track in Alberta.
