Frequently Asked Questions
What will I be doing in this Course?
Agility courses require human-dog teamwork – so you will lead, guide and encourage your dog through the course, running alongside her giving instructions and advice. This deepens your emotional bond and pays off in a more balanced relationship at home.
What type of obstacles will my dog encounter?
Depending upon your dog’s abilities and achievement, obstacles include tunnels, chutes, jumps, weave poles, A-frames and the dog-walk.
I don’t want to get involved with agility competitions. Is this Course for me?
Yes. While it can begin to prepare your dog for agility competitions, this Course is more about providing you with leadership skills to challenge your dog physically and mentally. It’s all about having fun with your dog.
My dog is timid, but I’d like him to participate. Is this a good idea?
Yes. Every dog learns at his own pace. Confident dogs may conquer obstacles with little help, while some timid dogs may take a few weeks of encouragement to overcome their reluctance. We ensure that your dog is always safe and enjoying the experience. This builds his confidence and willingness to challenge the obstacles.
Will you be offering intermediate and advanced Agility Courses?
Yes, depending upon the interest and attendance of the beginning Courses.
