Alaskan Malamute Bootstrap taking an agility jump
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.
