Intermediate Agility 1

In order to be successful in this class your dog must be able to work off lead, have a reliable stay, a release word, and recall to heel (both sides) from a distance of at least 10 feet.  You will advance skills learned in Beginner 2, adding distance and sends, growing skills on contacts and weaves, and sending to tunnels and table.  You and your dog will develop individual skills and teamwork by running short sequences of jumps, table, tunnel, contacts, and weaves.  Reading a course map and learning how to walk a course will also be included.

Agility students will be expected to comply with rules set by AKC, see the AKC handbook for reference. Section 9. Collars. At the handler’s option, dogs may run a course with or without a collar. The only collars allowed when running a course are flat buckle or rolled leather collars, but there shall be no attachments hanging or otherwise allowed on the collar. This shall not preclude painted or stitched designs or information on the collar. Dog’s names and/or identifying information may appear on the collar. No title, awards, or advertising may appear on the collar. Dogs may be brought to the start line on slip leads, choke chains, body harnesses, head halters or other collars that are permitted on the trial grounds. Pinch/prong and electrical collars (dummy or not), and special training collars are not allowed anywhere on the trial grounds.Additionally we will follow the AKC policy of no harsh treatment of dogs: Section 6. Exusuals. Handler continuously or conspicuously leads the dog through the course (excessive handling), uses harsh commands, or corrections. Including: Unsportsmanlike conduct.Handlers are expected to treat their dogs, instructors, other students, and themselves with respect and kindness. This will be a positive reinforcement environment.  

Length of classes: 8 weeks

Agility classes may be repeated once, if necessary.  If your dog has not learned the required skills after repeating a class you will be placed on a waiting list until there is space for you to try again.  

All classes involve wait time until it is your turn to run your dog.  You must bring a crate to agility class so your dog can learn to wait calmly and quietly.
