Agility is a fun sport that combines athleticism, speed, and accuracy of both handler and dog. At Peak Performance, we work with teams who are just starting their venture in agility, as well as seasoned teams looking to improve their timing, handling techniques, or obstacle performance. We focus on positive training techniques, as we want both dogs and handlers to enjoy their time playing agility. Whether you have aspirations of national events or as just looking for a fun day out with your dog, we have a class for you!
