Competitive Agility Footwork (C.A.F.)   6 weeks, 1 hour, $75 (Coming VERY soon!! Let us know if you want to join us!)

Tired of running “like a girl”? Or thinking you need oxygen at the end of a run? Or sending your dog off course with unintentional arm flailings? Or heard a “pop” and then felt the hurt? You’re not alone! Join us to help bring out the athlete in all of us! This class will be without dogs, just concentrating on the handler side of agility. After all, we are half the team, and how much time do we spend practicing our skills? We’ll improve balance, speed, coordination, strength, learn agility-appropriate stretches, do some fancy footwork drills, and have a lot of fun together! No, this isn’t bootcamp or a weight-lifting class. All ages and fitness level handlers are encouraged to come. Prereq: none

Run A Course!     3 weeks, 1 hour, $45

 

We get together on Saturday mornings for this class. We set up a full course each week, break it down into sequences, and then run it as a whole. This class offers help and instruction where needed, but it is intended for the handler/dog team who are either advanced enough to be competing or are comfortable skipping a piece of equipment that they are not yet proficient on. This is not the appropriate class to be training for the individual obstacles.
