About the Event
Hi Pack Leaders!
I have developed an agility course designed to promote healthy exercise, mental stimulation, improve confidence and trust.
This is a fun positive reinforcement based course for all levels. Whether you are new to agility or have some experience, this agility course is designed to build confidence and fulfill your dog’s need for mental, spiritual and physical challenges. You will be amazed at how quickly your dog will learn to trust you as you guide them through simple to more complex challenges.
This course is designed to be fun and geared toward family dogs, but more experienced handlers are welcome to join. This course is not designed for competitive agility.
This is NOT a class for doggies with aggressive behavior. I offer private sessions to address aggression to enable you and your dog to participate in group classes. Dogs must be at least 4 months old, in good health, and fine with other dogs and people.
What we will cover: Verbal and hand signals, Break, Jumping, Tunnel, Weave, Pause Box, Tire Jump, A-Frame, and other apparatus.
What is required from you: Have an open mind, be willing to put in the work and have fun. Family members are welcome as long as there is one primary handler who is committed to coming to all the classes. Children must be under your control.
MUST READ BELOW BEFORE YOU SIGN UP
Rules Of Engagement:
No retractable leashes or harnesses allowed. Slip Lead, Pinch Collar, and/or The Sidekick (Transitional Leash) are recommended tools. You can order The Sidekick at k9lifeline.com. For tiny dogs, I recommend the Mendota slip leash (3/8ths 6'). For powerful breeds that are strong pullers, I recommend Herm Sprenger 2.25 or 3.0 Pinch Collar and 6' thin leather leash.
Bring 15” check cord. Recommend brand is Mendota.
Bring treats and a treat bag.
Show up at least 15 minutes early to get acclimated and find our location.
If you are late, it poses a disruption to the pack. Do your best to be on time.
Be responsible and keep a healthy distance from other dogs and people.
One dog per handler. You may bring a partner and/or children over 12 under your control.
You and your dog must be in good health and able to walk on uneven terrain and do moderate walking.
**Please wear athletic shoes or hiking shoes as we will be walking on uneven ground.
Bring water for you and your dog in a backpack. No handbags. You need to be hands free!
