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.
This basic skills class will prepare dogs and handlers for AKC Agility, and dogs of all sizes and breeds are welcome. Dogs must have basic obedience skills, and, because they will be off leash, aggressive and/or reactive dogs should not be enrolled.
Maximum enrollment will be eight dog and handler teams. If you would like to take the class but were not able to enroll before the class filled, you may audit (without dog) for half price, and will be able to receive handouts and participate in discussions.
This fun 8-week class will be Part 1 on the road to being successful at agility. Instructors are Joy Jaskula and Lisa Hutchinson.
