MONDAYS – Bronagh teaching



Do you have all the basics down with your future performance dog and need the “next step” to get them ready for the excitement of agility, obedience, rally, and flyball class or trials? Then this class is for you!

This class is appropriate for dogs who have mastered basic obedience behaviors such as “stay” and leash walking. Dogs working on reactivity and anxiety are welcome.

This class is designed to give your dog the experience of being around other dogs and people in close quarters while remaining in focused and in “work mode.” The foundation theme of this class is Connection; we will be exploring various ways for you to feel connected with your dog and remain the center of your dog’s focus around an increasing level of distractions, and help you take that next step towards becoming a fully confident team.

TUESDAYS – Bronagh teaching 



This class focuses on Masters level standard/jumpers courses. We will focus on fluidity on course, handling techniques, confidence building, and any individual problem or skill each team might bring to the table.

Limit 6 teams.


Running dog walks, aframes, and bang-and-go teeters. All levels welcome! We will either start from the ground up, or build on the foundation you already have. The class will focus both on confidence building on all of the obstacles as well as training each obstacle fully.

Limit 6 teams.


Have a dog who has some great agility skills, but needs a bit of work when it comes to running in the ring next to another dog or waiting his/her turn while the dog before them runs? This class is for you!

The room will be divided in half and generally, two teams will be working at all times. We will focus on foundation focus skills–such as stationing, down stays while dogs run/people move around the ring, connected walking while another dog in running in the ring–as well as practice keeping focus and running in the ring while another dog is working directly next to your own. All levels are welcome, however basic obedience skills are strongly recommended.

Limit 6 teams.
