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.
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.
