Class Description: This class will teach a solid agility foundation and how to build your dog’s confidence and enthusiasm for agility performance. The class emphasizes basic clicker skills, motivation, and introduction of skills needed to perform the basic agility equipment (tunnels, contacts, and weaves). You will learn a variety of interactive games, crate games, rear-end awareness exercises, how to build value and focus for obstacles, and contact end-behavior foundations. Some of the behaviors we will shape your dog to perform will be: going through objects, on and around objects, sit, down, come, stay, and recall.
Note: regular contact equipment is not used in this class.
