Agility Classes


What is AGILITY?

Dog agility is an interactive Team Sport between a Dog and Handler. Agility takes basic dog training to a new level of training and fun. Agility is Not taking your dog to a playground to play by themselves on equipment. In the game of agility, the handler directs the dog through an agility course comprised of a mixture of agility obstacles in a race for both time and accuracy. Dogs must be able to run off leash through the course. The Handler directs the dog by voice, movement, and various body signals, requiring exceptional training of the animal and coordination of the handler.

Classes are taught at the Animal Barn in Mobile AL. Pre – Registration for desired class is strongly recommended to hold your slot in class. Class sizes are limited. Applications and waivers can be downloaded from LOFDT website or the Animal Barn website.
