Dog Sport Classes (Agility, Rally, Flyball)

We all want to have good dogs and one of the best ways to ensure that is through a structured class environment. Dog training also can consist of Dog Sport classes. Dog Sport classes at Best Paw Forward include Agility, Rally, Flyball and Rally/Agility Combo. Dog Sport classes are a not only a great way to have FUN with your dog but they also develop teamwork, build trust and strengthen bonding. Agility can be a great way for your dog to gain confidence.

Puppy Agility

Agility is a sport where the dog/handler team run a timed obstacle course consisting of mostly jumps, tunnels and climbing obstacles. This 6 week course is designed to introduce young puppies (between 4 and 10 months of age) to Agility obstacles. The emphasis is on building a strong relationship and having fun with your puppy. To ensure your puppy's safety and long-term health, obstacles are kept very low and only obstacles deemed safe for young puppies are used. Agility is a great way to build confidence and control in your puppy while having a blast! Puppies must wear a plain buckle or snap-release collar and must be well socialized with other puppies. They do not need any obedience training prior to taking this class. Class size is limited. Come have fun with your puppy! NEW CLASSES BEGIN ON THE FOLLOWING DATES:

6 One-Hour Sessions....$160

Agility 2

Agility 2 picks up where Agility 1 left off. The objective is to instill confidence from both ends of the leash. Agility obstacles in short sequences for intermediate dogs and handlers. It concentrates on handling skills to help get your dog through the course in the most efficient and fastest way. 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!

Rally/Agility Combo 1

Is it Rally? Is it Agility? No, it's both combined! This is a unique class where we have combined low intensity Agility with Rally Obedience. The dog/handler team will start off with a few Rally signs. But in between the Rally Obedience signs there might be a tunnel or a barrel or a low jump instead of another Rally sign. Great for dogs with physical disabilities that can't do traditional Agility due to bad hips or elbows or whatever the case may be. Also great for people that just want to do something fun with their dog. This class will build confidence and teamwork and will be fun for both the handler and the dog! Come check it out!

Also great for people that just want to do something fun with their dog. This class will build confidence and teamwork and will be fun for both the handler and the dog! Come check it out!

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. Basic Manners 1 is a prerequisite. Class size is limited. NEW CLASSES BEGIN ON THE FOLLOWING DATES:

6 One-Hour Sessions....$150

Flyball 1

Do you have a dog that LOVES (Really Loves) Tennis Balls???? If so, this is the class for you and your dog!! Flyball is fun and fast! It's essentially a competition between teams of dogs and handlers. On cue, the dogs are sent over 4 jumps. Then they push on a box that sends a tennis ball into the air. The dog grabs the ball in mid air and flies back across the jumps to the starting line and then the next dog in line takes his turn. The team with the fastest score WINS! But everyone has a fantastic time. Dogs must be at least 9 months of age, 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! Don't think you can get your dog to to this...no problem...we will show you how; just like we did with the dogs in these videos. None of them knew how to do it either when they started. NEW CLASSES BEGIN ON THE FOLLOWING DATES:

8 One-Hour Sessions....$180
