Policies

  • If your dog is new to or just starting agility, it needs to start in the Foundation and Relationship class. The Training Director will contact you when there is a slot for you in the class and then your check will be cashed. Until that time all checks are held.

  • If a student is under 18 years old, s/he must have a parent or guardian present at the class.

  • You may train as many dogs as you want, but only one dog per class please - unless approved by the Training Director.

  • Register for only one regular class per dog with one exception: you may sign up for the Distance class at the same time with the same dog.

  • Dogs work in small groups - a maximum of 5 dogs per instructor - in all the regular classes, to ensure you get lots of attention.

  • Sorry but bitches in season may not attend classes until their season is finished.
