Hi there.... we are looking for an agilty class up here in upstate NY. I am an aussie(nuff said), and love other dogs, and mom thinks that this is the perfect sport for me! If you know of any good ones in the saratoga springs/albany/glens falls area PLEASE let us know! We can hardly wait to get started!

Hey hey,

Your mommy just needs to go on google and do a bit of research! smile that's how my mommy found our agility school. Or you can call your vet and ask him/her if they know of any place you guys can go. Vets are good for that kind of thing.

Good luck, and I know you and your mommy will have lots of fun in agility! It's a great thing to do.

Call around to the local places that offer obedience classes and see if they offer agility. I'd check the facility too and find out how many people are in the classes. Obviously more space and fewer people makes for more training time.

It's loads of fun. I've been taking classes with Izzy about a year just to build her confidence and build communication. It's really fun. Maybe I'll even try a competition one of these days.

Yeah, that too smile

you can always sit in on a class when trying to decide which school to go to. It's very important that both you and your mommy like the instructor.

Howwllooooo out there sweet pups! My mom looked and looked out there, and found only ONE around us! It is in Greenfield NY, called JAZZ Agility. Its $70/8 week course. There are only 6 dogs in our class, and boy is it a TON of fun! Mom ordered some of our own jumps to practice, and some weave poles, they should be here in about 7 days. I love it! Just started with the basics, and it seems like a nice place. Mom wants me to get really involved, maybe do competetions if I can. smile So fun! There is also one other place in Clifton Park NY, but it seems like they are a much larger place, and there are ALOT more different classes like water retrieving classes.... we are lookin into it. Mom wants to have me certified as a therapy dog.... and they have a class for that too! I will keep you up dated!!!
