Agility is a fun and fast-paced dog sport where you will learn to guide your dog through an obstacle course while racing against the clock. This sport is great for any dog but is especially suited for dogs that have more energy than their owners know what to do with!
At My Dog and Me, LLC we offer both agility classes and private lessons at our facility in Sparta Wisconsin.
Our agility instructor, Kate Olson, has been competing in agility for over ten years with dogs of various breeds including border collies, australian shepherds, and a miniature dachshund. Her dogs have competed successfully at the top levels of competition in AKC, USDAA, and NADAC competitions. She is currently training her Pyrenean shepherd and Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever.
