If your dog has energy to burn, loves to run and jump, agility is the sport to try. Agility will not only burn off that excess energy, it will engage your dog mentally and because agility is a team sport, it will build a stronger bond between you and your dog. Agility is also a great confidence builder for the timid dog.
The floor at My Hero Dog Training is short artificial turf and was made for agility training. It is thick, padded and non-skid designed with you and your dog’s safety in mind. The contact equipment (A-frame, Dog Walk, See Saw and Table) are rubberized to keep your dog from slipping and sliding. Safety is a top concern at My Hero Dog Training!
Agility classes are not suitable for aggressive or reactive dogs. It is best for their safety and the safety of others that you schedule private lessons.
