I think so - they are such talented dogs!!to be honest, if there's not many other options then go with it. Some training will be better than none! And a PLACE to train is good, even if the instructors aren't great... and if you do plenty of research online you'll start getting an idea of what you're doing!
This is so very true!!! We are having to retrain. Getting out of the incorrect training is very hard on both of us.Looking at the site I only see dogs with Novice Agility titles. These are the lowest level of titles in agility. It is always a concern to me when an instructor has not achieved higher level titles in the sport they are coaching.
It is very important to always set a correct training foundation even if you just want to go out and have fun. You might find that you really like agility and that you want to be competitive in the sport. There is nothing worse than having to go back and train out bad habits and incorrect training.
I would ask what training method they use to teach contacts and weaves.
You might want to try going to trials like suggested. My mom goes to a private trainer for agility. I don't think she even has a website, so the only way you would know she trains is by asking around at a trial. It's worth a try!These people really didn't impress me either just in speaking through email. We have nothing good around this area at all for this.
I went under the AKC site a few minutes ago and found what I was looking for. The shows are about 90 minutes away, but their facility is only 30 minutes. So I am going to check it out, thanksYou might want to try going to trials like suggested. My mom goes to a private trainer for agility.
