Get your puppy off to a good start
The Super Star Puppy Foundation Class for puppies 3 to 8 months of age covers obedience, good manners, and discipline as well as socializing and puppy games. We also introduce them to Agility and exercises that enhance your puppy's physical and mental development. Our Puppy Classes are also proud to be part of the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program. STAR is an acronym for Socialization, Training, Activity, and Responsibility. The program is designed to get puppies and their owners off to a good start. For more information on this new program go to www.akc.org/starpuppy/
Are you ready for the next training level for you and your dog?
Dog Agility helps your dog become physically fit, confident, responsive to your commands, and well coordinated while having lots of fun at the same time. Our agility classes are both for fun, and for people wanting to continue to the highest levels of competition. Check out our Agility Champions in the Agility Cool Critters page.
Located at 3136 Oak Tree Place, in Valrico, we offer Dog Agility classes for all levels: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and Masters. Beginner Agility teaches the dog to negotiate all the equipment safely. In the Intermediate, Advanced, and Masters classes you will learn to be a better handler. We teach AKC, USDAA, NADAC, and CPE agility.
