About this event
Intro to Agility is a four-session course designed for dogs of all ages, sizes, and training experience levels. This class introduces you and your pup to the fundamentals of this interactive and quickly growing sport and covers basic agility obstacles such as jumps, A-Frame, tunnels, weave poles, and pause tables. Agility training is a great way for handlers and dogs to deepen their bond, improve communication, and strengthen trust.
During these four, one-hour classes, our Certified Professional Dog Trainer, Katie McGuire, CDBC, CPDT-KA, will teach your dog the basics of this fun, quickly-growing sport.
This class includes an introduction to agility obstacles such as jumps, A-Frame, tunnels, weave poles, and pause tables.

Participants' – both pet parents and their dogs – health and safety are our highest priority. This means that all dogs must be up to date on their vaccines (DHPP, Rabies, Bordetella). Please bring proof of vaccinations to the class.
To save time at check-in, please fill out your waiver and email your dog's vaccination records to programs@annenbergpetspace.org.
Additionally, please note that this class is designed for dogs who are comfortable with new dogs and people. If your dog is reactive or becomes overexcited around new dogs and people, we suggest you register for a class that can specifically help your pet become calmer around other dogs and environments before joining this session.
Please note the following guidelines and reminders in advance of the class:
• Dog handlers must be 13 years of age or older
• Dog handlers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult
• There must also be at least one adult present for every child under the age of 13
• There is only one handler allowed per dog. If more than one person is attending with a dog, one person will be designated to participate as the handler and additional attendees will observe
• Dog handlers must wear closed toed shoes and long pants
• Dog handlers must bring a six-foot, non-retractable leash
• Dogs must wear a flat collar, cloth Martingale or harness (no choke chains or prong collars)
• We recommend avoiding giving treats to your dog for a few hours prior to class, and only a light breakfast if necessary- a hungry dog is a motivated learner!
• Please bring plenty of your dog’s favorite treats!
