*fearful or aggressive dogs will not be comfortable in group classes
I recommend private training classes offered on our Canine Counseling page.

*Due to limited space, I do not offer make-ups for group classes.  If you know you cannot attend some of the group classes PRIOR to registration, I will be happy to prorate you (prorated classes are not offered with the Town of Southold classes).

"Agility for Fun"
Try out the addictive sport of agility in this four week class. It's for fun! The concept behind this class is to introduce your dog to agility equipment slowly so your dog is confident and happy to handle the basic agility obstacles - then, let's play! This class is non-competitive and relaxed, designed to have fun running around an agility course with your dog...no pressure.
