And, sometimes, agility is about going fast. Atticus the German Shepherd learned how to string together jumps & the curved tunnel, while his human learned about front cross handling skills in their lesson yesterday! - @DoggieAcademy trainer Amanda
Agility isn’t always about going fast. Sometimes it’s also about teaching a young Whippet who only knows GO to slow down. This ladder exercise helped young Dot with her spacial & body awareness, and helped focus her mind and slow her body. For a dog who likes to SPRINT after exercises, she did great! - @DoggieAcademy trainer Amanda, ft. @dotinthebigcity
Check out Wyatt & his human rocking this twisty, turny sequence during their lesson this evening with @DoggieAcademy trainer Amanda!
Celebrating #NationalDogDay by sharing this video of Dutchess and her “grandma” Sharon crushing this short sequence after being away on vacation for several weeks. What an awesome pair! - Amanda, @DoggieAcademy
Izzie is an itty bitty Border Collie who stopped by the BDTC today for an agility intro with @DoggieAcademy trainer Amanda! She did a fantastic job and got to play with her frisbee, too!

Roxy and her human @alannakaivalya crushed it today during their agility lesson with @DoggieAcademy trainer Amanda. I’m not sure which Roxy loves more - running around with mom, or her turkey rewards either way, great job you two!

Congratulations to our most recent graduates of Puppy Fundamentals! L to R: Phoebe the Welsh Springer Spaniel, Louie the Silky Terrier Mix, and Nala the Rhodesian Ridgeback! Lots of great puppy play times and opportunities for socialization were had! Well done puppy parents and puppies! - Patrick
Rosie came in for her first agility lesson with Sarah today. She has a high play drive so we’re going to harness that in her training. Not only will we use it as reinforcement, but also to teach impulse control & arousal level management. This is going to be fun!

Can you guess the breeds? Cash is a mix of 5, but we’ll take his predominant 2, because those are what he mostly looks like. Any guesses?
