Canine Influenza Virus has just recently been verified in Fayetteville, AR. Dogs who are exposed to it are 80-100% likely to become infected. With that in mind we are now requiring that all dogs be vaccinated. There are two vaccinations required, the first by the time the puppy is 12 weeks old, and the booster 3-4 weeks later.

Agility Foundations - the most important parts of a future agility dog’s education include drive, enthusiasm, and focus. In this workshop, we will work on bringing out the best in young dogs by fostering these traits and building the handler-dog relationship. The class is for dogs who are not yet ready to jump at full height and to learn all of the obstacles. We won’t work on weave poles or contact equipment as part of the class, but there will be lots to work on – from warmup routines to start lines to basic handling skills to keys to maximizing speed.

Dogs should be at least seven months old and have some familiarity with basic obedience commands (especially stay and come). Older dogs are welcome. This class will begin on Sunday, June 10 at 4:00 p.m. There will be a total of 8 classes in the course, but will be held intermittently depending on Ed’s availability due to scheduled agility trials).
