An instrucotor will be on site, and we will have courses for all levels

If you participate in run thrus, you must either arrive early or stay late to help set up or take down all the agility equipment.

The instructor cannot be responsible for setting up and taking down all the equipment.

After June 19, there won't be Agility classes during the summer until further notice -- the 2017 Fall Session.

Agility Summer Vacation, June 20, 2017 - until the Fall Session of 2017

After June 19, there won't be Agility classes during the summer until further notice, i.e. when the 2017 Fall Session arrives.

If we had more Agility instructors to rotate, we would not close down Agility classes for the summer.

Rescued Dogs Rate Highly at IPOC

  • Rescued dogs are eligible to receive a one time 15% discount from the regular price of either the Kindergarten Puppy Training (KPT) or the Basic Obedience classes.
  • This offer is valid up to one year after the adoption date with proof of adoption, from a well known rescue organization, which must be shown at the time of class registration.
  • We feel rescued dogs deserve a second chance and an obedience class will give them and their new owners a better opportunity to succeed together.
