Intro to Agility

Dog Agility is an excited fun sport for both you and your dog. In this intro class you will be introduced to each of the agility obstacles separately and learn to give both verbal and hand/body commands correctly.

For Intro to agility your dogs needs to be able to SIT, STAY, DOWN, COME relatively reliably and be non-aggressive. About half-way through the classes you will be asked to work your dog off-leash.

WHAT TO BRING:

(1) Your dog –one dog per handler

(2) Crate, x-pen

(3) Flat collar-buckle or snap-with no tags {no choke collars allowed}

(4) 6-foot leather or nylon leash {no chains}

(5) Small soft treats/favorite toy for rewards to dog

(6) Water for your dog and you

(7) Chair if you don't want to stand all the time

 

As with all our classes you must be a paid-member of KCA to participate. The class fee for members is $60, and for non-members $80(this includes the $20 membership fee, good until July 1 of 2014). The course consists of 6 one hour lessons.  A minimum  of 5 dogs must sign up to hold the class.

Please arrive early to the first class for registration and tuition payments. You MUST BRING an up to date copy of your dogs vaccinations, including rabies, DPLH-P, and Bordatella to be attached to your Registration Form. You may pay cash or check (payable to KCA- Kern Canine Activities)

    It was a good start. I am afraid Boomer's nose kept him at the bottom of the class..lol. We will work on the table this week, not sure why he does not want to do it. Thank you Sandy for your patience and help. I was pleased with how well all the dogs did for a first class.

    This is going to be a good group of dogs! All of them were really into working with their handlers.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
