This eight-week class is for small dogs (17" at the shoulder or under) and follows guidelines put forth by the Teacup Dogs Agility Association. (Find out more about the TDAA at www.k9tdaa.com). This sport offers the same challenges that regular agility has for larger breeds, but with scaled down equipment for the little guys. IRDTC has the specialized, small-scale equipment used for this sport, with thick rubberized matting. Best of all, the smaller equipment allows for classes to be held inside, in our air conditioning/heated building! Dogs taking this class should already have some basic obedience skills, especially a good recall. (Pre-requisite: a basic obedience class or personal evaluation by the instructor.) Cost for this 8-week class is $85 for non-members and $45 for members. Instructor: Norine Noonan.
CLASS IS NOT YET SCHEDULED. This class is beginning agility for ALL SIZES of dogs! Dogs should have basic obedience training and be at least 6 months old. The focus will be on activities needed to build a strong relationship between the dog and handler. We will be introducing the dog and handler to agility obstacles and will teach the dog the body awareness needed to be successful in agility. Instructors: Jackie Hardin and Vickie Maloney.
