ADDED April 15, 2021 - Intro to Canine Freestyle

This course will be taught by Mari Becker and Heidi Fuge.  The focus of this non-competitive session will simply be having fun dancing with your canine partner.  Both Mari and Heidi have created routines, and danced with, several different dogs.  They performed a pairs routine with their border collies, AJ and Flash and created another pairs routine with their dogs Brady Brown and Tango.

This class will meet Friday nights at 5:30 starting on May 14th.  It will consist of three weeks of training and practice with a rehearsal and recital on the fourth evening.
To sign up for this class, please contact

We will be inside the building for this session.  We will have to follow CDC and NYS guidelines as they relate to COVID-19 so that we can continue to hold classes.  They are as follows:

1) Everyone must wear a face mask (we don't care what type or style) during class.  Yes, that includes while running your dog. This may not be easy (I have tried it, it can be done but is a learning curve).  If you don't have a mask, don't worry, I have made and will continue to make masks that students can use and take home, if desired.

2) Please don't come with a spectator without prior permission - only the person running their dog(s) should attend.  We have to limit the number of people on site and maintain social distancing, and this will help greatly.

3) Only the instructor(s) will be setting bars in a class. 

4) Please maintain social distancing while sitting in the chairs that are ringside.  You can use the crates in the building for your dog, but maintain social distancing whenever possible.

5) Please enter/exit through the main door, but be wary that other people may be coming the other way through either door.

6)   The bathroom in the building is available for your use.  Please be cautious when coming/going. There is a sign in the bathroom with instructions for minimizing touch contact with surfaces in there.

7) We will be sanitizing the touch surfaces (gates, doorknobs, chairs, crates) in between classes.  Please be considerate of the instructors that need time to do this function in between classes.  We apologize that there will be less time to chat with the instructors!  Also, if you want to chat with the other students, please maintain social distancing.  And, don't let the dogs interact with each other, they can be carriers too!

8) When you arrive each week, the instructor will ask you if you have been tested positive for COVID-19 or been in contact with anyone that has tested positive in the last 14 days.  This is procedure, required by law.  Please be patient with your instructors, we all have to follow these rules!  If you have a fever, have tested positive, or are under mandatory quarantine please contact your instructor as soon as possible and please don't come to class.  If this happens you will get a partial refund.

Thank you so much for continuing to support AgileDogs, and we hope to see you all again soon!
