Agility 1

Agility Training

Agility is a timed team sport where the dog and handler navigate a series of obstacles at speed.

Dogs of any heritage, purebred or mixed, can compete. With more than 8 sanctioning organizations, there is a style of agility for everyone. Comp K9 classes are focused on building a strong foundation that can be applied to any flavor of agility and helping you learn the equipment and course handling skills to implement them. On top of that, it’s just plain fun!
