One Smart Dog offers a complete agility program for the novice right through to those competing at the international level. We follow the Awesome Paws Foundation Skills and Handling, One Mind Dogs, Shape Up Pup, Bad Dog Agility, The Agility Challenge, and many other positive methods of training and handling. We adhere to the belief that promoting teamwork through motivation, consistency, and positive reinforcement for both the handler and their dog leads to success and enjoyment in the sport of agility.
Our program is broken down into easy-to-follow 5-week sessions and pricing starts at just $27/class. To ensure each student receives personalized instruction we put a limit of 6 dog-handler teams in each class. To help you succeed we also offer smaller focus classes where you can fine-tune one particular skill or piece of equipment which will have you performing at your best in the ring!
Dogs 8 months or older should begin in our Agility: Foundations 1 program provided they have no history of aggression, can walk on a loose leash, have a sit and stay cue, and is comfortable in a group setting. For most dogs attending one of our Essentials or Puppy classes before starting in Agility can give them a head start on the foundations, but it is not a requirement.
Small dogs under 10 months of age and medium and large breed dogs under 6 months of age can enroll in our Puppy: Sports program. This will provide age-appropriate training to provide them with a head start in their agility career.
One Smart Dog offers a complete agility program including competitive handling classes from Novice through to Premier/UKI and our equipment focus classes. If you are new to One Smart Dog we require an assessment before signing up for one of these classes.
