Why Do Private Dog Agility Training?

There are a few reasons you might decide to do private dog agility training instead of group agility classes! Maybe you're already taking a class, but want to focus on a particular skill. Or maybe you'd like to try out agility, but your dog is nervous or reactive around other dogs. Or maybe you just want some 1-on-1 time with your dog! Regardless, we're here to help!


Why do agility in the first place?


There are so many benefits to teaching your dog agility. 

  1. Enrichment: All training is enriching for dogs, and agility is no different. Agility is all about focus and communication, so there is a big mental component for dogs.

  2. Exercise: Dogs also get a nice dose of physical activity with their mental enrichment. This combination can be more fulfilling than just physical exercise on it’s own.

  3. Communication: Agility is all about quick responses to information, which prompts your dog to pay more attention to physical and verbal cues.

  4. Confidence: One of our favorite things to see is a low confidence dog realize that an obstacle is really fun, and then gleefully try it again. Agility is a wonderful ego boost and even though we may have to take things at a slower pace at first, the payoff is huge.

  5. Impulse Control: Your dog will absolutely have a favorite obstacle, it takes so much willpower to make that good decision and listen to your cues instead!

  6. Obedience: Really? Yes! Most of your basic manners cues are reinforced in agility. Stays, recalls, sits, and downs are all cues used in agility. But, because the are part of a fun activity the practice doesn’t feel so tedious!

We’ve invested in special equipment that gives us lots of adjustment options for different ability levels. We can make the obstacles flat and low for puppies, senior dogs, shy dogs and dogs that need to take it easy. And if your dog doesn’t do well in a group class, we offer private training options and gym rental options so you can work solo.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dog Agility Training

Who are private agility dog training lessons good for?

Private lessons are great for a few circumstances: maybe your dog doesn't do well around other people and dogs, so a class environment is overwhelming. Maybe you're already in a class and want to practice some specific skills with 1-on-1 support! Or maybe you just can't make the days/times we have group classes. Private dog agility training lessons are a great way to do something fun with your pup.

What requirements are there for agility?

Dogs need to have experience with basic manners, especially skills like sit, stay, and doing that even with distractions! Agility classes are a great fit for many dogs, but if your pup is reactive, has aggression toward other dogs or people, is extremely fearful, or is experiencing health issues, agility may not be the right fit for group classes. We do offer private lessons for pups who can't be in group classes, and can adjust the exercises to fit the needs of most dogs in that lesson.

Will you offer agility competitions?

Nope! Or at least, not formally. While we offer the basic skills that you can take with you into competition level agility, that's not what we do.

Do you think my dog would be good at agility?

Dog agility training is great for a lot of dogs, but it's hard to know without trying! Some dogs love all the obstacles from the beginning, and others take some time to get used to all the new things. The Intro Class is a great way to start!

Where are the dog agility training lessons?

Our dog agility sessions are all held at our Community Center in North Austin, at 7020 E Hwy 290

Can I do dog agility training with my puppy?

Yes! We offer a special Puppy Agility series that introduces puppies up to 10 months old to the dog agility obstacles in a safe, fun way. This means lowering the obstacle heights and avoiding any sharp turns or other movements that could be tough for a puppy's growing body. It's super cute, very silly, and great for developing new skills and bonding with your puppy!
