    Agility Run-Thrus

    Tuesday Evenings starting at 6:00 pm

    Watch our Facebook group for info each week to verify weather and times! 

    Becky Stewart is in charge of the run-thrus.

    The cost is $10 for up to two runs for members and nonmembers. 

    This means that the first run is $10 and the second run is free and can be used on the same dog or a second dog. 

    Volunteers are always needed to help set up the agility field beginning at 5:30 PM.  
    As an incentive for volunteering, the cost for volunteers is $5 for up to two runs (first run is $5, the second run is free).  Please follow safe practices by maintaining social distancing of at least six feet.  Face masks are requested, particularly if you need to enter the clubhouse for any reason as we are requiring them when entering or exiting the building. 
    You will be asked to sign a liability release before you run your dog(s).

    Competition Agility - Pre-Novice/Novice - July/August Session

    • Four Week Session - $53 member/$58 nonmember
    • Prerequisite: You and your dog should have completed a basic obedience course and be able to do a basic sit, down, stay and recall.  Handlers must be able to do some running on the course. 
    • Class starts June 28th, 2021
    • Monday Mornings 11:45 am to 12:45 PM - Outside Agility Field
    • Instructor: John Gorbas

    Class Description:

    Please note that Crates are mandatory for this class and dogs must be crated when not working. 

    Class Description: 

    This Competition Agility course is designed for handlers that are interested in learning the sport of agility and eventually competing, or handlers that are already competing but would like additional training.   In this course you will learn about the various obstacles that are used on an agility course: jumps, tunnels, dog walks, weave poles, A-frame and see-saw to name a few. Through the use of positive rewards, luring and targeting techniques to familiarize your dog with the obstacles, you and your dog will learn how to use the various types of agility equipment and gain confidence and proficiency. 

    You and your dog should have completed a basic obedience course and be able to do a basic sit, down, stay and recall.  Handlers must be able to do some running on the course.  Most agility dogs tend to be high prey drive but for the safety of all we require that the dog not be aggressive towards other canine teams and behave in this type of a group session.
