What to Expect

Handlers practice walking courses and developing and testing handling strategies. The goal is to provide practice opportunity and support for advanced dog-handler teams actively competing in Open level and higher.


Dog-handler teams have earned a Novice agility title in at least one venue (e.g. AKC, USDAA, NADAC, UKI) or have demonstrated an ability to compete at such a level. Dog participants must be able to reliably come to the handler when called, focus on the handler in a distracting environment, and share the class field with other dogs and people safely.
