The American Kennel Club describes Agility as a dog sport where you direct your dog through a pre-set obstacle course within a certain time limit. We agree but also think it's a great way for you and your best friend to build a better bond, have fun and get some exercise. Our Programs are designed to let you expand your obedience in a fun and active setting.
