Puppy Agility Fun
Does your puppy have the basic manners, but has more energy than you know how to channel? This class is a great way to use your puppy’s body and mind to tire them out while expanding their skills, socialization, and improving their listening skills. The class works on agility skills that keep all of the activities and equipment puppy appropriate. Plus it is a lot of fun to see them go through tunnels, climb on things, and work off-leash in a secure environment.
