Whatís this agility camp thing all about?  Itís a perfect opportunity to give you and your dog exposure to new and wonderful instructors, and over the course of 2 days to learn many new things and become a better team in the process.

Who can attend? Any dog currently competing at any level, in any venue, or ready to compete can attend.

Can I just attend one day? Unfortunately, no; because of the rotating instructor format and material to be covered, you must attend both days for the full camp experience.  The cost is $250 for a full 2 days of camp experience.

Whatís the schedule? Working teams will be set up based on experience level and problem/focus areas.  Each team will stay together for the course of the weekend, rotating from instructor to instructor for working sessions each day.  There will be breaks between working sessions, as well as a lunch break.

Can I work a second dog? You may only work one dog at a time.  However, if you want to substitute a second dog working at a similar or higher level to your first dog, please contact me so I can approve the substitution.  You may bring as many additional dogs to camp as you wish to that you are not working in camp.

 

Make it an agility vacation!   Stay for the CPE Agility trial at the same site on August 9-10!  Put into practice what youíve learned in camp by competing in a friendly, one ring trial environment.  Camping allowed on site all 4 days.

Opening postmark date for the trial is June 17th.  Go to trial to download the premium.
