Our goal is to make training affordable, accessible and enjoyable; from the beginning agility team to competitive teams. We use only positive reinforcement training techniques and focus on the handler/dog relationship.

Training Philosophy

The Good Dog Agility Training philosophy emphasizes positive training techniques with your dog. The sport of agility is meant to be enjoyed by both the dog and handler. A flat buckle collar is recommended for training.

Good Dog Agility is a USDAA (United States Dog Agility Association) club and training stresses USDAA rules. All Good Dog shows are USDAA sanctioned shows. Many Good Dog members compete in NADAC (North American Dog Agility Council) and AKC (American Kennel Club) as well, however, training will focus on USDAA standards, rules, and regulations. Visit the USDAA site for more information about USDAA. Links to these other organizations are located under Resources.
