KAOS Dogsports teaches a variety of classes throughout the year, but not all classes listed are held in every session. Sessions run for 7 weeks, and some classes are offered in a 4 week format
Pre-registration is required for all classes.
Classes taught are determined by our waiting lists. If you are interested in any of the classes below, please email the appropriate contact.
Classes are filled from waiting lists from other classes first. For example, if a student starts in Puppy Kindergarten or Level 1 Foundation, their name is kept for the next level and the classes are filled from there to start. Instructors recommend where students should go to next, including when they are ready to go on to another dogsport such as agility or flyball.
Below are the classes that will be offered this spring.
Obedience Classes – Contact: Colette (email@example.com)
Canine Fun 101
Running Mondays @ 7:00pm, May 7th – June 18th (7 weeks)
This class is an introduction to all that we do with our own dogs. The class is divided into working stations with foundation obedience being one of the stations every week. Other stations include how to play, learning to jump, rear end awareness, tunnels, barrels, targeting and some introductory skills used for flyball and disc. Most dogs and handlers benefit from having Foundation Level 1 first, but some can go into this class with prior training elsewhere or with an experienced handler.
PREREQUISITES: Level 1 Foundation Training (recommended)
Level 1 Foundation Training
Running Wednesday @ 7:00pm, May 9th – Jun 20th (7 Weeks)
Running Wednesday @ 8:15pm, May 9th – Jun 20th (7 Weeks)
Open to all ages, all breeds. Building a strong foundation with your dog is like building a house. Without a strong foundation, the house would soon crumble, thus foundation training is important for the family pet, as well as the dog that will go into other dog sports such as flyball, agility, Rally-O and conformation. Basics are sit, down, stay, come when called and learning the heel position. This class is a pre-requisite for every other class that KAOS offers. This is the class that will start to create a bond between dog and handler that is more than just a collar and leash.

Nothing planned at this time
Agility Classes – Contact: Jimmy (email@example.com)
Beginner Level 1
Running Tuesdays @ 8:00pm, May 8th – June 19th (7 Weeks)
In Level 1 agility students will be introduced to the majority of the equipment seen on an agility course; such as contacts, jumps, tunnel, tire and table. By the end of the class dogs will have a strong start on their contacts and should be able to sequence together 2-3 obstacles. Although the class is done on leash, dogs should have a good understand of basic obedience such as sit, down, stay and should have a strong recall.
PREREQUISITES: “Level 1 Foundation Training” | Recommendation from instructor to move on to agility
Intermediate Level 2
Running Tuesdays @ 6:45pm, May 8th – June 19th (7 Weeks)
The Level 2 class is a continuation from our Level 1 class. The rest of equipment (spread, double and long jumps) will be introduced. Handlers will learn various crosses and dogs will continue to sequence obstacles together. For maximum benefit in this class dogs should be able to work off leash and stay focused on the task at hand and their owner. A strong stay is also important.
PREREQUISITES: “Agility – Beginner Level 1” | Recommendation of the instructor to move on (Students who have taken Beginner Level 1 will have priority)
Canine Fun 201
Running Mondays @ 8:15pm, May 7th – June 18th (7 Weeks)
This class is an intermediate continuation of the Canine Fun 101 class. Activites include tunnel relays, barrel relays, 3-point barrels and other fun handling exercises. This class is primarily run off leash.
