Agility 2 Agility 2 picks up where Agility 1 left off. The objective is to instill confidence and a sense of fun in performing Agility obstacles in short sequences for intermediate dogs and handlers. Now that the dogs have been introduced to each of the obstacles, Agility 2 places emphasis on the handler keeping the dog's attention at all times and concentrates more on the handler helping the dog to get through the course correctly and quickly. The emphasis is on relationship building and having fun with your dog. Dogs must wear a plain buckle or snap-release collar and must be well socialized with other dogs. Class size is limited! It's great fun...come join us!
Agility 1 is a prerequisite.

Class begins Monday, June 1st at 7:40pm in our Hartland location.

Rally 1 Rally is a sport, held in conjunction with obedience training, where the dog and handler proceed at their own pace through a course of directional signs in a manner similar to Agility but with obedience signs at each station instead of obstacles. The dog and handler team heel from sign to sign and perform the exercises indicated on the sign at each station. It is fun and a great way to continue working on cues and learning new skills. Class size is limited! It's great fun...come join us! Basic Manners 1 is a prerequisite.
Class begins Tuesday, June 9th at 6:15pm in our Hartland location.

Our Training Philosophy

Training is the most important thing you will ever do for your dog. How you approach training will forever affect the relationship between you and your dog.

We believe in positive, force-free training methods, which have been tested to show great results. We use a reward-based training approach that makes the learning experience fun for the dog and will ensure that your dog will put its "best paw forward", listening to and obeying your commands. We keep our classes fun for both dogs and owners while learning in a friendly, positive environment.

Best Paw Forward, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in the dog training business in 2012, was named No. 1 for Best Dog Training on the WISN-TV A-List for the sixth year in a row in 2014.
