CLASS DESCRIPTIONS: 

Puppy Agility Group Class: (6-12 months old) This is not an obedience class but instead builds on basic obedience skills. Participants will be working on sits, stays, having dogs work at their sides plus handling over agility equipment including the dog walk, pause table, tunnel and chute (puppies won't be jumping).  We will also do an introduction to clicker training.
Instructor: Sherri Fries

Level 1 Agility Group Class: (1 year and up, builds on Puppy Class) This class builds on basic obedience skills and covers handling over agility equipment including jumps, pause table, tunnel, chute, and the dog walk. Your dog should be able to sit, lay down, and reasonably stay (we'll work on that) and be able to work with you off-leash (we'll work on that, too.)  
Instructor: Sherri Fries

Level 2 Agility Group Class: (Pre-requisite: Level 1 class or similar) This class builds on Level 1 as you develop your handling and course strategy skills, working with your dog on increased confidence and safe obstacle performance.  This class emphasizes speed and accuracy along with improved handling on sequences with more ground work, jumps, jump grids, and turns. The teeter and weave poles will be introduced. 
Instructor:  Sherri Fries

Level 3 Agility Group Class: (Pre-requisite: Level 2 class or similar)  This class builds on Level 2, continuing with course running and handling skills, while refining the approach to the teeter and weave poles. These will be incorporated in sequences as the course progresses.

Level 4 Agility Group Class (new!): (Pre-requisite: Level 3 class or similar)  This class builds on Level 3, where participants should be able to do the teeter and weave poles plus all obstacles.  This class will focus on handling skills utilizing bigger sequences.
