Does your dog love running, jumping, and playing? Do they have tons of energy? Maybe you’ve  heard about the exciting sport of dog agility and are ready to give it a try, but aren’t sure that you’ll ever want to compete. In our Fun-gility classes we teach the basics of the sport, without the competitive angle.

These classes are all about you and your dog having maximum fun, while learning basic obstacles and agility handling skills. This class is perfect for people trying agility for the first time, or those with retired agility dogs or older dogs who would like something fun to do together. Once you and your dog have mastered the targeted obstacles, you’ll be ready to join an Ongoing Fun-gility group to keep the fun rolling!

If after playing agility, you decide you would like to prepare for competition, we can direct you to our Great Agility Program!
