Beginner Agility

  • CaNine to Five 1534 Route 9 Clifton Park, NY 12065 (map)

Dog agility is a popular sport in which dogs and handlers navigate obstacles, racing against the clock. Dogs soar over jumps, run through tunnels, balance a seesaw, slalom through weave poles and more! It's a great physical and mental workout for both members of the team, and tons of fun for dogs and people alike! Any breed or mixed breed can do agility, and it's a fun way to bond with your dog. In this class, dogs will be introduced to agility obstacles and humans will learn handling skills to navigate through courses. Dogs should be at least 4 months old and have basic obedience skills prior to taking this class.
