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

-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.

LOCATION:  

-Our Winter location starting Oct 1, 2022 to Spring 2023 - we are renting a heated indoor horse arena near HAGUE.

-Our classes in Spring/Summer/Fall will be held outdoors on our fully fenced 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

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 work with you doing certain skills, not necessarily involving pieces of agility equipment in order to prepare you and your dog to safely and effectively perform an agility course and advance your skills

-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, 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.
