Class Structure:

Most agility classes are split into two groups of students and dogs, and both instructors have an opportunity to work with each group during the class (classes average 90 minutes in length).  This teaching plan allows each student/dog team generous practice time on the agility equipment (5 or 6 sequences per class), as well as more individualized attention from the instructors.
