Agility Classes In Fort Collins, CO

I am a strong believer that Agility is for everyone and every dog that is physically capable of performing the equipment safely. I work very hard to ensure a safe class environment for all dogs and humans in the class. Agility is an amazing sport that can be fun for the recreational participant all the way up thru the National competitor but the benefits of training for this sport aren’t limited to the agility ring and that’s the real benefit.

Agility 1

Interested in teaching your dog agility? This is the place to start! You’ll learn foundation skills your dog needs to know in order to perform well on the course and have fun with you such as body awareness, driving ahead, and how to pay attention to you. You’ll learn foundation handling skills such as the front cross, rear cross, and blind cross so you can tell your dog where to go and when. You’ll both learn proper execution of various pieces of agility equipment including jumps, tunnels, and the pause table.
