Introductory (BASIC) Agility
Class Description: In this class dogs will learn to negotiate the AKC Novice Agility obstacles and will be started on the weave poles.

Pre-Requisite: Teams enrolling into this class must meet the requirements for and have attended the previous 6-week Foundations class.
