PET DEGREE Beginner Agility Training

Beginner Agility is a rousing sport in which people guide dogs through an obstacle course with vocal cues and hand signals. If you believe your pup would relish such a pastime, PET DEGREE can help him or her every step of the way.

Signing up for Beginner Agility Class

The first class in our series is Beginner Agility. To enroll your dog in this course, you have to show us proof that your pet is fully vaccinated. On top of that, your dog needs to have completed the PET DEGREE Beginner Obedience course. If your dog has learned obedience from a different school, one of our trainers can give him or her a free readiness evaluation.

One Obstacle at a Time

This course will let your dog become familiar with a wide range of agility equipment. We’ll introduce these items at a slow, steady pace so that your canine can grow accustomed to them. For example, he or she will eventually be able to jump through a ring without feeling apprehensive. As a result, your dog will gain a sense of mastery and pride.
Also, be aware that all of our equipment is of the highest quality. In addition, we work on recycled turf, which is safe and comfortable for dogs.
Throughout this class, we recreate the conditions that dogs typically face during agility competitions. Thus, your dog will be near various people, animals and scents, and he or she will learn to block them out and stay focused on assigned tasks.

Owner and Pet, Learning Together

Humans learn plenty from this course as well. By the end, you’ll know common agility commands, body handling methods and new training procedures. Beyond that, we’ll supply you with a detailed dog and puppy agility training guide as well as a glossary of terms. That way, you can continue to study this fascinating topic. As a bonus, you can give us photos of you and your pet practicing at home, and we’ll turn those pictures into a lovely journal that you can keep.

This class involves eight weekly sessions, and you’ll have some fun homework assignments to complete between those meetings. The sessions take place in the main PET DEGREE building at 2055 Clinton Street.

When this course is complete, your dog will be ready for our Intermediate Agility lessons, and you’ll be able to sign up for a variety of agility events and workshops. Best of all, you’ll probably find that your relationship with your dog has become even closer and warmer.
