About Our Dog Agility Program

Dog agility is the most popular dog sport in the United States. It’s a timed event where dogs run, jump, climb, and weave through a variety of obstacles in a set order. Each course is different, so the challenges never end!

Crossbones has agility classes for all dogs, from total beginner through experienced competitor, taught by Katherine Ostiguy, a USDAA Regional Champion with 15 years experience in the sport. Whether you’re brand new to the sport or have competed for years, we have a class for you!

Agility Classes

Intro to Agility

Your dog will learn the basics of the most popular dog sport in the country: agility! Exercises include going through tunnels, over jumps, across narrow planks, navigating wobbly objects, & warm-up tricks. Learning to motivate your dog with toys and food, and building up to off-leash control will also be discussed. This class is appropriate for puppies, as jumps are low & kept to a minimum.

Prerequisite Classes: 6 Core Manners classes & at least 2 classes in the past 2 months
