We are excited to add Agility classes to the line up for 2016 at Leash Free Living! In agility, dogs navigate an obstacle course under direction of their handler. This a fun way to get to know your dog and create teamwork between dog and owner. Obedience is the hardest part of agility, so these classes are only open to graduates of the Beginner Group Class, or Advanced Puppy Class (or the private lesson equivalent of those programs).
Six week group class to apply your obedience training to agility, introduce your dog to agility equipment and teach agility specific games and commands. This is a small group class to get you and your dog working as a team, and ready to navigate agility courses. Class is limited to four students per session. Upcoming sessions are listed below.
