Competition Dog Agility Classes:
With a feel for handling sequences of some complexity, you are ready to begin our
competition level classes. These courses will help you learn to master the increasing
levels of complexity through two distinct processes: developing specific skills and
running full courses. We begin each class by working a piece of our course that will
develop a specific skill required to perform that particular course successfully. This
allows you the opportunity to isolate, drill and master specific skills sets. In the second
half of the class we will run the course which includes the skills previously worked on.
You will walk, run, analyze and discuss these courses (not necessarily in this order) to
determine optimal handling alternatives. The level of challenge increases as you move
from Competition A to B to C.
Courses will range from standard to jumpers to United States Dog Agility Association
