The Basic Dog Obedience class at our facility is a prerequisite for Agility classes. After taking the Basic Obedience class, students typically progress into Foundation for Agility 1. Please contact us for more information.
Our dog agility classes are designed to build teamwork between the dog and handler while presenting them with challenges they may see in competition. Material is tailored to each class so that the students will benefit the most from what is being taught.
Cowtown Dog Sports has a number of classes available at different times throughout the year. Contact us or look at the calendar for the latest schedule.
