Fungility has the fun of Agility without the commitment of doing a lot of training at home. This class will not cover the finer points of the sport. It will focus on learning the easier obstacles and having fun.  Dogs will learn several of the agility obstacles including Jump, A-Frame, Dogwalk, Tire and Tunnel. The obstacles will be kept at a lower height for safety AND you’ll have the option to skip the pesky teeter and weave poles. Because we keep all the equipment nice and low, this class is appropriate for young dogs and even senior dogs.

Both people AND dogs love this class. You’ll both get a weekly chance to get out, get some exercise and have some fun together! Only minimal practice will need to happen at home for this class. This six-week Intro to Fungility class will introduce the obstacles  and some very basic handling. You’ll also start stringing those obstacles together to create mini-courses. Start out by joining an Intro to Fungility™ class. Some teams may choose to take the Intro class multiple times. Once you and your dog have mastered the targeted obstacles, you’ll be ready to join an Ongoing Fungility group to keep the fun rolling!
