FUNgility – 6 months plus
(Beginner skills required)
Just for Fun and BOND Building, FUNgility introduces you and your dog to several pieces of equipment used in AGILITY, Jumps, Tunnel, Tire Jump, Weave Poles, A-Frame & Teter Totter. A great sport for both you and your dog. This is a 6 week course, running Summer months only as we work outside in the 3 acre field. Rained out days will be made up at end of course.

This sports focus is to create positive relationships between dogs and owners based on trust and respect. ATTITUDE is more important in RALLY than precision. Dogs and handlers “just gotta have fun”. The concept of a single continuous performance, uninterrupted by orders from the judge, demands a sustained communication between the dog and handler. Rally Obedience goes beyond basic heeling by interspersing over 40 obedience movements with the sits, turns and paces of traditional heeling. Rally is for those who desire an effortless activity that is fun and games.
