  • THE PLACE FOR DOG SPORTS IN INDIANAPOLIS

We offer classes for dogs and handlers of all ages and skill levels. Our trainers are trained and certified. All use positive motivational techniques based on animal behavioral research and best practices.

Begin with a Beginner agility class. Then advance to a Novice class. If you are already competing in agility, enroll in one of our advanced classes for dogs competing at the open or excellent level. If you prefer team sports, try a class in fly ball (a four dog team relay event).

We offer daytime Beginner II, Novice, Open and Advanced classes Wednesdays and Thursdays. There are no Beginner I daytime classes. Please feel welcome to contact us about the daytime schedule; we will be glad to answer your questions and enroll you in a class.

Pre-Agility

  • Over 6 months
  • All vaccinations
  • Vet certification as able to participate in agility. Be sure to talk with your vet to make sure your dog is physically fit for strenuous athletic activity.

Prerequisites: To start PreAgility class your dog should know all the basic skills. In addition the dog must be able to focus, pay attention to and work for the handler, not running off to visit other dogs or people. The dog should be able to do these skills off leash in a class with other dogs and people working nearby.

Classes

This class consists of two consecutive 8 week sessions. Each of the two consecutive 8 week sessions will meet once a week for 8 weeks/classes and costs $110.00. The class meets on Wednesday evenings alternating approximately every 8 weeks meeting at either 6:00 or 7:30 pm. Unfortunately we do not offer daytime PreAgility classes.

In our PreAgility classes you and your dog learn fundamental agility skills and are introduced to obstacles such as tunnels, jumps, small dog walk, low teeter, and beginning weaves. The handler also learns basic handling skills allowing him/her to guide the dog through the course.

Beginner I Agility

  • Over 6 months
  • All vaccinations
  • Vet certification as able to participate in agility. Be sure to talk with your vet to make sure your dog is physically fit for strenuous athletic activity.

The training requirements for enrollment for Beginner I classes include all of the skills learned in Pre-Agility. This class will be easier and more enjoyable if your dog will stay with you when working off leash and can work with you with distractions. We also find that dogs do better if they have already developed a working relationship with their handler. If you do not as yet have these skills, we encourage you to take our Pre-Agility class. We also suggest you begin with Pre-Agility, if you have not already trained a dog for a competitive dog sport.

Classes

This class will meet once a week for 8 weeks/classes and costs $110.00. The class meets on Tuesday or Thursday at 6:00 pm. Email or call for the date of our next session.
