OTCWF has been offering agility classes since 2007 and are excited to be the only organization in this area of Texas/Oklahoma to offer this type training. Our agility instructors have all been training and trialing for several years, and they all compete at the highest levels of agility. We have three large fenced areas used solely for our agility classes, and we keep all of our equipment in great working order and meeting AKC requirements. We welcome spectators to classes, but please call ahead if you are coming, as we are at the mercy of Mother Nature to provide cooperative weather conditions. Our start times may also sometimes change due to extreme heat or cold.
AGILITY CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
PUPPY AGILITY (For puppies 6-12 months old)
Puppies and handlers will learn basic agility commands and maneuvers through fun and play. Puppies will be introduced to sights, sounds, and techniques which will help to develop their athletic ability without stressing baby joints. Clickers, treats, and toys will be used as motivators. Puppy Agility class sessions run concurrently with our regular obedience class sessions. Contact us for days and times
