What Dogs Can Take This Course?
This course is designed for dogs that are already old enough to jump agility jumps at their full height. Dogs that are not physically or mentally prepared to jump agility jumps are not ready for this course. If your dog has started his agility jumping education, and is learning how to sequence on sequences of 1-5 jumps, this course is appropriate for your dog. Some of the sequences toward the end of the course will be more challenging for you and your dog, and may be appropriate as you and your dog gain experience together as a team, and as your dog's jump training has progressed a little further.
What Will You Need?
- 6 Jumps (wings preferred)
- One Tunnel
- A 50x50' space or larger
