Classes & Private Lessons

COVID-19 UPDATE 

Outdoor classes will be resuming June 1st with small groups and new social distancing protocols. 

Jess will be offering private lessons at select times on Fridays for the month of June! 

In our agility classes all dogs and handlers are treated as individuals. You won’t find any “cookie cutter” curriculums here!

 

Our classes are taught exclusively by World Champion agility competitor Jess Martin. 

Our small class size (maximum of 4 dogs) means that you'll get plenty of personalized instruction during your hour class time. Our format is to have 2 dogs working at a time (separated by fencing) so everyone gets plenty of training time. 

As a weekly student, you also get access to our private student Facebook page which includes weekly course maps, Live Q&A sessions, and more!

 

We offer four levels of classes:

  • Foundation: This level incorporates relationship building games, balancing drive and self control, and the beginning of obstacle and handling skills. No previous agility experience is required. Open to dogs 12 weeks and older.

  • Novice handling: this level includes short jump/tunnel skill-based sequences of 3-5 obstacles and foundation contact skills. Dogs should be already doing jump/tunnel work.

  • Advanced handling: this level includes smaller course sequences of approximately 10 obstacles at a time, a gamble sequence, and a skill based exercise. Dog should be comfortable with contacts in sequence but do not need to be competing. Intro to weave poles is introduced in this level. 

  • Master handling: this level includes full course running, a gamble sequence, and a skill-based exercise. Dogs should be comfortable with all equipment but do not necessarily need to be competing at a masters le
