Agility – Burnaby

Home Agility – Burnaby

Start your dog off right in agility classes from certified professional trainers who actively compete in agility,  taught with real, competition-grade, safe equipment!



Riot jump wave 2013How do I start Agility?

If you want to get started in Agility, our Agility Foundations is THE place to start!

In Agility Foundations the dogs will learn things like tunnels,  jumps, the table, wobble board, tire jump, A-Frame and Dog-Walk, and many other foundation skills required to advance in agility, from the ground up.  We will focus on fun, safe, and proper training on agility equipment to maximize your dog's enthusiasm, confidence and understanding of agility, as well as correct and motivating dog handling by the owners. 

It is all about FUN though!  Learning will be through positive reinforcement, and games.   Whether you just want to take a fun, active class with your dog, or if you are keen to start your future agility competitor, all are welcome in Foundations Class.

After successful completion of Agility Foundations, you and your pup will be ready to move into Starters 1! In Starters 1 we continue building upon those foundation skills and add the start of weave pole training too!

As you advance through class levels we continue adding more skills and building upon the ones learnt in Agility Foundations. All while having a ton of FUN!

Dogs MUST have completed a group class (anywhere) prior to registering for this class.
If your dog has not taken group classes anywhere before, we suggest you register in a less active class, such as Rally Obedience Novice 1, or Good Manners Class, to fulfill the pre-requisite and to work on your dog's focus in a group setting and develop a good teamwork relationship with your dog!
Once your dog has taken a group dog class, and developed the ability to focus on only you and can work around distractions you are ready to take Agility Foundations!
This is a very stimulating and active class and can be exciting and distracting for dogs, so ensure that you and your dog are successful and have fun at our Agility Foundations program, we need your dog to have participated in a group class previously to learn how to work with you in a class environment.
Please note that Nosework classes, or class sets shorter than 4 classes will not fulfill the prerequisite.


If your dog is reactive, and requires a personal bubble of space from other dogs, we will accommodate your dog as long as you have previously worked with a positive reinforcement trainer on your dog's reactivity, so that you are skilled at managing your dog and preventing dog-dog interactions in a group setting.
Need a trainer for this? Let us know! We are happy to help!
