Good Sports Dog Training is 6000 square feet matted in Great Mats flooring. All of our agility contact equipment is Max 200 and is rubberized for better grip and safety.

Mondays:
10:00-11:00am Rally Obedience Class - all levels - Rally obedience is a sport in which dog and handler move through a numbered course. Depending on the level, there can be anywhere from 12-24 stations. Each station consists of a pace change, a stationary skill (such as a sit, down or stand), or a moving skill (serpentine through cones, 360 degree turn left, finish, about turns, etc…).

This class will focus on the skills required for all levels of AKC and WCRL. We will work on how to train individual skills, short sequences and complete courses for the two above listed organizations.

Prerequisites: Must have basic obedience skills and be able to work around other dogs. Dogs must be dog-friendly. Handlers must have experience with clicker training.

11:00-11:30am K9 Fitness Class - We will work on teaching body awareness and strengthening our dogs in this short fun class. K9 Fit Paws equipment will be used for some exercises. Dogs can be of any age, should be in good health with no known injuries, and should come to class in a non-restrictive body harness (NOT a no-pull harness) preferably with a handle, such as a julius k9 harness or similar.
