  OBEDIENCE

Prior to signing up for a class, consider whether or not you and/or your dog will be available for a majority of the classes.  If you intend to breed your dog during this semester, or send your dog away for shows or training, you may want to consider if you will be able to complete the requirements of the course.  A majority of the obedience classes fill and we often have to turn students away.

AGILITY


IMPORTANT: All dogs participating in agility must be physically sound & at an appropriate weight. Keep your dog's nails trimmed & keep hair around the feet trimmed to prevent slipping on the equipment. If your dog has hair falling in his eyes, tie it back with a rubber band or small barrette. Dogs with underlying health problems, including but not limited to hip & elbow dysplasia, cardiovascular disease, epilepsy, vision, or other health problems that limit endurance, balance, or motor control should not participate in agility without consultation with a veterinarian who is familiar with agility.  It is suggested that owners not sign their dogs up for agility classes until the dog is at least 12 months old.  Timing, however, is an issue with our structured start dates. If you wish to enroll a dog that will be younger than 12 months at the start of class, you must submit a waiver & request permission of the agility training director.  

Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who will remain in the building throughout the class.  Registration for agility classes is contingent upon instructor evaluation & approval of dog/handler teams as deemed necessary by the class instructor.  Participants must be approved by instructor.


Introductory Agility Courses

BRING YOUR RABIES INFORMATION TO THE FIRST CLASS.  For questions, please contact Registrar, Dana Hoppes by email RegistrarODTC@gmail.com   or phone (410) 804-8675.


The classes in this section focus on introducing/teaching obstacle performance.  Students will learn how to define successful criteria for performance of the obstacles as well as the basic groundwork needed for the handling skills to be covered in more advanced classes.  These classes start with dogs that have never seen, or have had only limited exposure to, agility equipment as well as dogs that have not reached acceptable obstacle performance levels.  

NOTE: The progression of classes is expected to be as follows:  Start with Foundations for Dog Sports for 1 or 2 sessions depending on the age of the dog, then move into the Agility 1, followed by Agility 2. Handlers and dogs continue their training with Agility 3, Skills classes and Coursework.  

***IMPORTANT***All participants in the Introductory Level Agility Program are required to work one day at one agility trial sponsored by ODTC during each semester they attend classes at ODTC. Instructors will provide students with trial information at the beginning of each semester.  In addition to meeting the skill requirements for each class, participation at a trial is required to move up a level. If you do not meet the criteria for a class, you must schedule an individual assessment and/or receive written permission from the instructor before classes begin.  You may register for classes prior to the assessments, but you must pass the skill level assessment to participate.

*** To enter AG100, AG101, AG110, or AG300 contact the Registrar, Dana Hoppes by email RegistrarODTC@gmail.com. Current students are given preference. See other requirements in the individual course descriptions.
