Urban Agility: Small-Space Skills (Not Just) For City-Dwelling Dogs! :: Meg McCarthy

Who says you need a full course to build great foundation and fancy footwork with your dog? This class is designed with small spaces in mind but will deliver big impact!

You don’t need acres of land or access to full courses to achieve success with your agility dog! In Urban Agility, you’ll learn to better trust and strengthen your dog’s obstacle commitment, develop more precise handling, and confidently tackle advanced techniques. With a focus on individual skills and sequencing, you will build a foundation that can later be applied to full-size coursework with ease.
