This is a progressive course and attendance of at least 5 classes is required to graduate.

Pre-requisite: A Beginner Agility Course and a Beginner Obedience 101 Course (Advanced Beginner Obedience 201 highly recommended) are required for all dogs to enter this course. The basic foundation of obedience such as sit, down, stay, down, stay and off leash control is required and essential in the development of agility training.
