Agility Classes

Does your dog have the ability – for Agility? Field of Dreams can help you find out with our weekly Agility Training classes!

Why have your dog run through obstacle courses, jump over hurdles, and crawl through tunnels? Well, because it’s tons of fun for everyone! But Agility provides many other benefits as well:

  • Exercise: Agility will keep your dog physically fit and healthy, increase his endurance, tone his muscles – and burn excess energy so he’s better-behaved
  • Alertness: Agility uses the same natural mental/physical coordination skills that dogs used throughout their evolution to chase and catch prey – but harmlessly so no one gets hurt
  • Bonding: Agility is a team sport in that you coach your dog and cheer him on as he runs the course – providing him with positive attention that strengthens the bonds of trust and rapport between you
  • Confidence: Being physically fit, mentally agile, and in synch with you will make your dog more self-assured and adaptable to new experiences – allowing you to take him more places

Granted, some dogs and breeds are more suited to agility because of their physique, age, and temperament. But we offer six levels of agility training, from Beginner to Advanced classes, with course challenges set to accommodate dogs of different abilities. So just about any dog can play Agility at Field of Dreams!
