Obedience Training Club of Wichita Falls 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 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 in order to meet AKC requirements. We welcome spectators to classes. 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 change due to extreme heat or cold.
BEGINNER AGILITY (FOR DOGS 12 MONTHS AND OLDER)
