These classes are designed as a recreational course to have fun, bond & exercise. We aren’t too strict on obstacle rules, therefore, classes are not intended for owners that want to compete. We are located in St. Johns, MO 63114. Sign up for a class for the full address. Class is outdoors on private property (63114) and there’s no public bathroom, so please plan accordingly. In case of bad weather class will be canceled and rescheduled. Also there are more distractions when training outdoors, but if you can get your dog to listen outdoors it makes training indoors much easier! We offer spring, summer and fall sessions!
Beginners Agility & Intermediate Agility
Next Session begins Spring 2020
If your dog is brand new to exercise or to agility this is a great start to build their confidence and endurance. This course is an introduction to agility especially for people who may be intimidated at getting started. Basic obedience is necessary for this class and you will continue to work with motivational/reward based techniques and bond building so that you and your dog work as a team. Your dog will learn the obstacles each class and then we will complete short sequences to run through.
Intermediate Agility will progress working on longer courses with weave poles still a priority while learning basic handling skills and the dog’s working off leash.

About your Instructor Kim
Kim grew up teaching her first dog, Molly, agility after seeing an episode on Animal Planet about agility. Kim’s mom came home and couldn’t find any of their kitchen chairs inside because Kim made an agility course outdoors with chairs and broomsticks. Her mom then made her an agility course and that’s where she spent most of her time after school. Later on in life she got Oscar and competed a couple times and came in first place, but she really just enjoys the sport for fun and spending time with her dogs.
“I love the sport of agility. I don’t enjoy competiting mainly because of the time commitment and i’m not competitive. I really enjoy just going to the backyard and playing around for fun, I like the bonding experience and exercise.” If you’re looking to get into competing, I recommended Westinn Kennels or Triune Canine Training.
