Agile Puppy- 15 Weeks to 10 Months old.
This training introduces puppy to basic manner's and includes tunnels and boards to work puppies balance. There is no better time to start training your puppy to build confidence and good skills. Emphasis on a fun, positive learning environment. Due to the fluctuating ages of puppies, we are glad to offer training on a one-to-one basis with private sessions.

Some of these may include basic handling,fun-tunnels, touch target training and wobble-boards. These develop motor skills, confidence, and a willingness to work for the dogs and thier owners.

We recommend a basic puppy class to get your dog familiarized with working in the presence of younger dogs when you puppy is young.
