Chicago Puppy Training

Intro to Dog Agility Training Classes


 Agility Overview

Tucker Pup's is considered an "essential business" and we are open and available for boarding, daycare, and grooming.

Training is currently on hold through April 7, when the statewide lockdown expires. The government could push this date back, so we are not scheduling any classes or socials until we have more certainty.

We will soon be providing virtual classes and private lessons, where you will participate from your device at home. They would follow the same curriculum, and you would still be able to access TrainTrack in order to view the homework, watch videos, and track your progress. Let us know if you are interested. If you have already signed up for training, we will let you know more very soon.

Agility is a wonderful canine sport, where your dog goes through an obstacle course. It is excellent for teaching your dog to listen and follow your direction. It is also great exercise, mentally stimulating, and is a lot of fun for the humans!

In our Intro to Agility class, your dog will learn to:
  • Go over jumps, which can be set at any height that you want
  • Go through a tunnel, which can be shortened or expanded to any distance that you want
  • Go over the A-frame, which will be at a gentle angle so your dog is successful
  • Jump through a hoop
  • Go through weave poles
  • Sit on the pause table for a brief period of time
  • Go over the teeter-totter, which will be set at a gentle angle so it doesn't slam down when reaching the end

Introducing your dog to the equipment and commands will help prepare him for more advanced agility skills. Who knows - maybe one day your dog will compete and win some trophies!

David's Puppy Manners training gave us the tools we needed to make the most out of the puppy stage! It provided a positive and fun environment for us and our new puppy to bond and learn.
