AgilityFUN is our popular recreational obstacle course program created for you and your dog to enjoy together as a team. Classes are specially designed to present a low to moderate impact activity option for you and your dog. Students are always encouraged to progress at their own comfortable pace. You’ll learn how to teach your dog to focus, and navigate ramp bridges, run through hoops and tunnels, jump over low hurdles, and more. AgilityFUN classes meet indoors in climate controlled comfort, and the obstacle course is contained within a safely barriered section of the classroom to provide individual, off leash enjoyment for you and your dog.
