Agility

Agility has become the fastest growing canine sport in the country. Our 12,000 square foot center provides the largest facility in the Pittsburgh area plus modern training equipment that will help to train your dog with the fundamentals of agility while at the same time allowing you to have fun with your dog. All of these classes use only positive reinforcement and are taught directly by Barb, as well as a few additional individuals who have a proven understanding of learning theory and conditioning. Barb has trained with some of the world’s top agility competitors and will provide your dog with a better understanding of agility training. She is available for group or private lessons, which you can schedule by e-mailing at info@barblevensondogtraining.com

Our classes are provided to both beginners and competition handlers. In addition to our Beginner Agility our students can move to the Just for Fun Class or the Competition Agility class when certain prerequisites have been met.

Registration information: Classes are $150.00 for an 8 week session. New classes start every two months and are limited in size. There are certain prerequisite skills that you need to attend this class. Please call or email so we can discuss.

If you are really interested in agility you might also consider picking up Barb’s first book, titled “Flatwork for Agility,” published by Clean Run Productions and offering a variety of easy to train flatwork ideas. Flatwork involves what occurs between obstacles. When running agility your dog will need to take a good approach to the next obstacle. Flatwork will show you how to do this and how to develop a communication system with your dog of cues and movements specifically telling your dog what they should do.
