Agility Classes

Jumping Malamute

Agility is an action-packed race against the clock, with the handler guiding the dog through an obstacle course made up of jumps, a pause table, tunnels, so-called contact obstacles - the Dog Walk, the A-Frame, and the Teeter - and weave poles.

Northfield Dog Training has been offering a wide-variety of agility classes since the late-1990's. While we have some trainers who are training in agility just for the fun of it, many of our students compete and earn titles with their dogs in many different venues, including AKC, CPE, and UKC. These competitions are at the local as well as national level.

All agility classes are held in the south end of the big building at the rear of the NDT site.

A note about Filled classes. Occasionally, someone drops out of a class, so we maintain waiting lists for filled classes. Your check reserves your space in a class or on a waiting list.

The classes are listed in the approximate sequence we recommend you follow.

If paying by check, please write the section number(s) and your dog(s)'s name on your check. This is a big help for processing registrations.
