 AGILITY!!!

  Agility training can be a great deal of fun to do with your dog. These courses will help your dog to build confidence, and allow you to strengthen your handler/dog bond by doing something joyful and rewarding. To be eligible to join these classes at Joseph’s Training School, your dog must:  

  • Be in good health with all current vaccinations, be flea free and be physically able to climb and jump.
  • Be of good behavior, be non aggressive with other dogs or with people.

Curriculum Objective

  You will begin to build the foundation of skills necessary for all levels of agility . You and your dog will be introduced to the standard agility equipment as used in competition. You will learn appropriate and safe ways to use the equipment. You will also learn to do targeting with your dog which will help to teach your dog about the various contact areas on certain obstacles. In a positive and fun atmosphere, you and your dog will bond as a team based on trust and respect. Some of the fun things:

  • Jump                                  
  • Tunnel
  • A-Frame
  • Tire
  • Teeter
  • Pause Table
  • Weave Poles

What to bring to class

  • Comfortable, Flat Shoes for Running
  • Six Foot Leash and Flat or Training Collar

For Rewards

  • Soft small Treats (ex. Hot Dogs, Cheese) – cut into small, bite size pieces before class. You need a yummy treat to reward the dog quickly and often.
  • Toy(s) so that you can reward the dog with Play.
