Agility Instruction at IncrediPAWS

IncrediPAWSs strives to offer a consistent and progressive agility program. Instructors are familiar with the material and have a genuine interest in the success of their students. Our handling program is based on the skills taught and presented by Linda Mecklenburg in her Awesome Paws book series. There is a strong focus on building a solid foundation to minimize deficiencies in higher levels of training.

  • Group classes meet weekly for one hour over the course of six weeks. A few group classes meet every other week for two hours to accommodate students traveling from a distance; these are noted on the registration form. Instructors vary depending on the session. Group classes require pre-registration; check the calendar for session dates and class times.
  • Private agility lessons with agiltiy instructors are customized to meet individual needs, varying in length and frequency. After you book a private lesson, the instructor will discuss your training goals and develop a plan to address them.
  • Semi-private agility lessons offer private instruction to groups of 2-3 handler and dog teams. Students benefit by working and observing, which maximizes learning--ideal for those traveling long distances to train at IncrediPAWS.
