Agility Dog Training (Level 1 & Level 2) Classes in Calgary

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. That’s what we’re really passionate about! Your dog 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.

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.

Why Do Dog Agility Training?

These non-competitive, non-judgmental, and fun agility classes are a wonderful follow up to Puppy Training Classes, and to any dog (puppy or adult) that wants to have an exciting and safe new challenge.

It’s great exercise for your pet, helping them build balance and coordination. Not to mention how much fun it is!

Agility Techniques Covered

The focus of these classes is for you and your pooch to bond and build confidence as they learn to navigate fun obstacles.
Your dog will have so much fun and pleasure with the classic dog agility routine:

  1. Going through a tunnel
  2. Climbing over a bridge and A-frame
  3. Weaving through poles
  4. Sailing over jumps
  5. And finally – settling on the agility table doing a sit/down/stay.

Not only that, but your dog will also learn:

  • Touch
  • Front and side sits
  • And weaving through your legs

Dogs in this class are never forced to do any piece of equipment they are unsure of. Patience and positive reinforcement is our number one method. Once an agility skill is completed or mastered, there is wonderful clapping and support from everyone in class.

Your pooch will have so much pleasure and fun going through a tunnel, climbing up and over a bridge and A-frame, weaving though poles, sailing over jumps, then settling onto the agility table doing a sit/down stay. Your dog will also learn touch, front and side sits, and weaving through your legs. This helps them to focus on you while they learn to patiently await their turn on the equipment.

There is nothing more rewarding than watching your fur baby (especially a shy one) easily race up or confidently run through a piece of agility equipment that he or she was initially wary and fearful of. All of this strengthens the bond between human and canine as you both learn how to work in unison.

Once Fun Agility Classes are completed, you are welcome to attend our drop in fun agility sessions where you and your dog can freely work on any piece of equipment you like, at your pace. It will be a first come first serve (email) system for the drop in as only 6 dogs can attend for safety reasons. So much fun to be had!

Requirements to Attend Agility Training Classes

All group training classes are only for dogs that are at ease with other canines and people. If your dog exhibits reactive behavioural issues such as uncontrolled lunging, barking, growling, or severe symptoms of anxiety when in a group setting, these sessions will be too stressful for both you and your dog to attend.

For owners of reactive dogs we recommend our Private Dog Training sessions to assist with these socialization issues.

It is Raising Canine policy that we do not accept pit bulls.
