Puppy Pre-Agility

For all puppies 3-6 months of age with proper immunizations. Puppies and handlers have a safe introduction to large motor skills activities specially geared toward the learning style and physical needs of puppies. A great way to develop self confidence and socialize your puppy while developing a great relationship with each other!

Agility 101

For all non-aggressive dogs with on leash control. This course provides dogs and handlers a safe introduction to all of the agility equipment used in competition. This foundation will prepare teams to continue enjoying recreational agility or competition agility. Prerequisite: Beginning Home Obedience with Seattle Agility Center or instructor permission.

Agility 102

This course continues to develop a strong foundation in obstacle negotiation and handling skills. Teams will also increase off-leash control and communication. Prerequisite: Agility 101 or instructor permission if dog has had agility experience elsewhere.

Agility 103

For students who have completed Agility 102. This course focuses on sequencing, walking courses and strategizing how to handle challenges as well as “perfecting” foundation skills (we really never stop working on the foundation skills regardless of how advanced we are as a team).

Pre-novice

Further practice on course management and sequencing. By completion of this course teams should be able to maneuver all equipment safely, be fairly adept at 6 weaves, perform teeter without assistance, walk a novice course and plan a handling strategy. Upon graduation of this course teams continue into Novice Competition Classes at the Novice Prep level.

Agility Competition Training Classes

Novice, Open, and Elite

Novice Competition Classes prepare dogs and handlers for beginning level competition. In Open and Elite Prep, you practice and refine advanced competition skills and strategies on AKC, USDAA and NADAC courses, as well as work to improve handling and teamwork with exercises and training games. Classes work in small groups of five to eight people rotating through course work and handling exercises.

To register for competition classes, in addition to instructor approval, the following pre-requisites apply:

  1. For all classes, you must have off leash control, be able to keep the dog on task (no ditz runs, excess sniffing, dog aggression, etc.) know how to perform all the equipment, and be able to run a full course.
  2. Dog and Handler must have at least 1 leg in Novice Standard for the Open Prep class, or have at least one Open leg for the Elite Prep Class.
