Agility & Flyball Classes
 
 
We offer private agility and flyball lessons for $65. We have two agility courses: one is a learning center for beginners with lower obstacles and jumps, where the course height is set easy and safe even for puppies (minimum age 4 months); the second is a regulation level course for more experienced dogs. Our flyball course has 2 runs and is appropriate for all skill levels.

GENERAL INFORMATION FOR LESSONS
 
When signing up for obedience or agility lessons, please keep in mind that all these activities are held outdoors. Our land is primarily forested, so please dress appropriately with regard to weather and insects.
  • Suitable footwear is especially important. We recommend gym shoes or hiking/work boots
  • Consult your veterinarian prior to starting agility or flyball to ensure your dog is physically able to participate.
  • Make sure your dog is protected against heartworm, fleas, and ticks (Heartguard, Frontline, and other preventative medications for these parasites are available through your vet)
  • All dog owners are responsible for having their dogs current on vaccinations (Rabies and Distemper required, Bordetella and Lyme recommended). Bring proof of vaccinations with you to all activities.
  • We recommend bringing Benedryl with you in case you or your dog have allergies
  • Aggressive dogs will not be allowed to participate without a muzzle (acclimate dog to muzzle prior to attending)
  • Please do not let your dog eat any wild mushrooms – some can be toxic
  • Children must be accompanied by an adult. Children and dogs must not be left unattended
 
 
Flyball and agility build strength and confidence in your dog, and along with obedience training, they are a fun bonding experience between dog and owner. We look forward to seeing you for a great time!
