Dog agility classes are so much more than learning the physical skill of agility. Your pup or dog gains bountiful confidence, helping them become happier and healthier dogs. Our agility classes are non-competitive and non-judgemental. Your dog or puppy will further develop basic obedience commands while being both physically and mentally stimulated in a positive and rewarding way.
Above all – our agility classes are fun and non-competitive! What makes the Raising Canine environment so great is that we have fun and support one another before anything else. Some dogs will take to agility skills naturally, and others will need more time. No matter what, every dog at every level is encouraged with raucous applause. We can tell you, there is no better feeling than watching your fur baby complete an agility skill they were scared of at first. He or she will beam with pride and confidence that fills your heart. That moment is what we’re all about.
Level 1: These classes start with the basics such as agility equipment introduction. Each week, 2 new pieces are introduced until a full course by the last class is finally in place. Safety utilization of the equipment is taught and stressed, as well as how to ensure both dog and human feel confident, competent, and happy going up, down, over, and through all the various pieces.
Level 2: Once dogs have graduated from Level 1 agility, they and their humans are then welcome to go forth with Level 2. These classes give the dogs and their owners the ability to increase their skill level with speed, accuracy, and endurance as more jumps and longer courses are included. Focus is still to have fun and be free from a highly competitive and judged atmosphere.
Classes are 45 minutes long, held once a week for 6 weeks at Raising Canine’s Calgary NW location.
Class size is kept small (4 – 6 dogs) to ensure optimum learning.
