Introduction to Agility

This fun and fast growing dog sport invites a handler to teach their dog to negotiate an obstacle course of tunnels, a variety of jumps, climbing and more! Introduction to Agility Class is for anyone who wants to try a fun hobby with their dog. This class strengthens the bond between dog and handler, and provides fun and exercise for both.
