Classes at the Doggie Academy are a fun and exciting experience for both the dogs and their owners. When we approach Doggie Academy, the dogs get excited and rush to the door. I find the classes are useful to improve as a dog owner, and they help the dogs develop better disciplinary skills, as well as enhance the emotional bond between pet and handler. I don’t plan on taking my dog to any agility competitions, nonetheless the activities involved excite the dogs, and encourage them to figure out what the trainer is looking for; a skill useful for training any desired behavior. I’m very happy to be taking Leo and Ares to agility, and I hope to continue watching them grow.
