About our Classes:

-We want you to feel welcome and encouraged at our classes!  No matter your skill level, type of dog, experience, physical ability, etc.  Whether you want to work towards competition, or just have fun learning together with your dog.  Families are welcome to learn together or take turns, provided children are always supervised and everyone participating is interested in listening and learning.

-Small class size (7 dogs per instructor max.) to ensure you have plenty of time to practice and receive individual instruction.   Level 1 may have 2 instructors with a max of 7 dogs each, with each class group in their own area.

-Puppies (6 months and under) will have specific and separate classes according to their needs and attention span!

-If you have a dog that shows signs of aggressiveness or reactivity especially around other dogs, please let us know about your concerns before you sign up for a class.  We will try to find an option for you that is safe for both you, us and other people and dogs in the class.


-Our classes in Spring/Summer/Fall will be held outdoors at our large fully fenced area on our acreage about 5 min North of Osler (20 minutes North of Saskatoon on Hwy 11)

What to Bring:

  • your dog
  • readiness to listen, learn and work positively with your dog
  • a "regular" leash and "regular" collar. No flexi-leads. I am not a fan of prong collars. Harnesses are fine.
  • plenty of small, high-value treats that your dog enjoys
  • poop bags
  • if your dogs has a favorite toy that motivates or excites them, you can bring that if you want, it may be helpful in training.
  • appropriate footwear and clothing for the weather (please check with us about the weather if you are uncertain - just because it is raining somewhere, doesn't mean it will be raining at our acreage). Sandals are not the best for class, especially not flip flops!
  • bug spray if desired

Our Classes - What you will learn:

-Starting with beginner classes, we hope to emphasize building your relationship with your dog and their willingness to work with and focus on you through playing and food or toy rewards.  

-We will be doing some foundation/ground work of getting your dog to follow you and know what position to be in.

-We will be touching on some obedience work such as sit, stay occasionally

-We will be interactive with lots of agility equipment - hoops, jumps, tunnels, A-frame, teeter, dog walk, weave poles etc.  

-Learning in agility is never-ending.  There is always more to practice, more skills to learn, and ways to improve for both handler and dog.  Each class will introduce new skills and work on improving your skills progressively.

**If you already have experience in agility, please let us know and we will work out an option for you that is appropriate for your experience and skill level.

Levels 1-4 - Practice with all equipment - dog walk, frame, teeter, weaves, jumps, hoops, tunnels.  Progressively increasing your skills with obstacles and sequencing.

Intermediate 1-4 More advanced learning and sequences where the dog has more experience on all equipment and can perform harder sequences, taller dog walk, etc.

Jump Skills 1 - Foundational and motivational work with jumps from different angles, distances, positions and developing different skills with jumps.  Only jumps and occasionally tunnels will mostly be focused on in this class.  (Dogs at any level past Level 1 can enter this class)

Straight Line Class - Improves your dog's ability to find and confidently complete straight lines and send your dog ahead of you.  A super confidence boost!  (Dogs at any level past Level 1 can enter this class)

Contacts/Teeter/Weaves - This class focuses only on performing the contact equipment (Frame, Dog Walk and Teeter) and practice with the 2 on 2 off stop/stay.  Also lots of practice improving weave skills.  (And dogs past Level 1 who want to focus on these skills are welcome)
