Additional Class Information

All Classes:

  • Please clean up after your dog.  Plastic bags, pooper scoopers, and trash cans are available for your use and can be located near the shed and both light poles.  Urine spray is also located in the shed and should be used if your dog accidentally eliminates in the main training area or on the agility equipment.
  • Dogs are welcome to play off-leash both before and after class.
  • Please “walk” your dog in areas away from the main training areas.
  • Classes canceled by the instructor (usually due to weather, illness, trial conflicts, etc.) are added to the end of the session.
  • For Level 3 through 6, absences are charged towards an in-progress 5-week session; however, classes canceled by the instructor (usually due to weather, illness, trial conflicts, etc.) do not count against the session.
  • Please leave female dogs in season at home to prevent disruption of classes in progress.  Handlers are still more than welcome to come observe their class so they can keep up.
  • All classes meet once a week for approximately 60-90 minutes.
  • Dogs need to be in good physical condition conducive to agility training.  Instructors will help make recommendations for the health and well-being of each individual dog.
  • Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your class is to begin.  This gives you time to potty your dog and be ready for the start of your class.
  • If there is a dog with special needs, like an ARF dog (aggressive, reactive or fearful), we highly recommend private lessons to assist with behavioral issues to help set the dog up for success before enrolling in classes.

Miscellaneous Information:

  • Class schedule for the current week is provided via voice mail by calling the PAWS recorder at 940-627-3612.
  • Visitors are always welcome to come watch any PAWS class (with or without their dog).
  • After completing Advanced Beginners Agility (Level 2), students are allowed to use the training field for personal training at a nominal fee through the “PAWS Practice Program”.  More information on the PAWS Practice Program is provided at the end of this section.
