The course is designed to stimulate your dog’s mental capabilities as well as releasing there energy with physical stimulation. In the canine agility training class, your dog will learn how to go over all the obstacles and start obstacle sequences. Most dogs will run the full dog agility course by the end of the 6 week course. In puppy agility training, we will graduate to a very thin parachute line by the end of the 6 week course. There is a puppy agility training course as well as an adult canine agility training course. Some puppies will graduate during the class to higher obstacles located in the adult course. Each dog and owner will go at their own speed to ensure a safe and fun environment for all. There is no obedience training necessary to start basic adult or puppy agility training. The agility instructor will show you a few obedience exercises to work on in between classes. If your dog can sit, this is all which will be expected for a basic dog agility training level class. Come join in a canine agility training class and explore what abilities your dog has.

The intermediate Atlanta dog agility training class will help teach your dog how to listen to you when your dog is in high drive. When your dog is excited and running, you must have command and control over him/her. They will learn this skill in intermediate level dog agility training. You also learn tighter obedience training; your dog will be running the full course off leash with more speed, accuracy and fury. Also, the Atlanta dog agility training course layout will change and dogs will have to do the crisscross course, enabling the dogs to use their problem solving skills. By the time the dog is in intermediate agility they will know all the obstacles by name and sight. Dogs will learn to do the course in reverse. We will start the dogs on hand signals and teaching them "push" towards the next obstacle. The weave poles are also introduced in intermediate level.

Agility Tips:

The training “Cavaletti Work” originated from the equine world where trainers work young horses over low poles to teach the horses to balance themselves and look ahead. Agility trainers have borrowed this training method since Cavaletti Work provides great agility ground work training. Use a simple ladder and lay it down flat on the ground and lure the puppy with a treat over the rungs. Teaching a puppy to run through a ladder is an exercise that makes him more conscious of his rear end and how to use it efficiently. Building rear end awareness will pay off in your future agility training. It will help with teaching the puppy’s jumping and confidence building on and over obstacles.

Owner’s Testimonial:

My young Corgi and I joined Atlanta Dog Trainer’s Basic Obedience Class a couple years ago. That enjoyable and very helpful class led to Intermediate Obedience, Beginning Agility, and on-going Intermediate Agility. We keep signing up for session after session. The dogs learn and develop more confidence and understanding.

More importantly, at the intermediate to advanced intermediate level, we, the handlers, learn more advanced skills that encourage the dogs to react to us. Most students in the class keep coming back each succeeding session. Why do we keep returning? Our teacher Sonja! Sonja instills so much excitement in all the agility classes. We love going to class and practice sessions on our own at the facility.  Sonja herself competes her own dogs and takes her own training classes, which information she imparts to us. In Atlanta Dog Trainer agility classes, we all – dogs and humans – have become good friends. We all cheer for each other and sometimes laugh at each other as well.  Sonja's enthusiasm, positive, upbeat energy moves class so quickly and we desperately want to perform for her with our dogs. Any mistakes are met with encouragement and we try again.

And we all gain from Sonja’s expertise as a dog trainer in general. Whether or not your goal is to compete or just train your dog and have fabulous fun, Sonja welcomes you to the class. For those competing, Sonja is there to guide you to success at the shows. These classes are so key for development of relationship with your dog. My corgi cannot wait to get out of the car at "school" and see Miss Sonja, Miss Susie, and her dog friends. The agility training facility is immaculately kept with every piece of equipment needed for those that want to learn to compete. With Sonja as the agility trainer, we feel so welcome at class and practice sessions. Sonja is a good friend and motivator to her students. The fact that we all keep coming back, session after session, is true testament to how Sonja runs her agility program. Everyone loves her and my dog and I won't go anywhere else for dog training
