Introduction to Dog Sports

Class Description:

This will be an introductory level class that will work on foundation behaviors while having fun at the same time! 
We will introduce you and your dog to basic agility, obedience, rally, scent work and tricks while also working on the fundamental skills needed to pass the Canine Good Citizen test. Not only will you and your dog have fun but will also have gained basic skills and a deeper bond that comes from working as a team.

This class is designed for beginner dogs and handlers to give them an idea of the different dog sports that are offered and which ones might be a good fit for them to pursue further while giving them a training foundation to help them obtain their Canine Good Citizen.  (The CGC test is being held June 13th, the Sunday after the last class.)


  1. the dog must be under the owner’s control and not aggressive to either dogs or people. This class moves fast and we want it to be a fun experience for everyone. 
  2. a basic knowledge of sit, down and stay.  This class is designed for beginners however these basic commands will make this class more enjoyable for everyone and we will work on perfecting them as we go. If you need help starting these three before class begins, email the instructor -
