Join us in learning the fast game of Flyball!  This 6-week class introduces new handlers to the basics of flyball, such as recalls, box work, and jumping.  Some prior foundation training is encouraged to ensure the student has a measure of control with his/her dog. This class is offered on demand and may be taken more than once until the handler/dog team is ready to advance to the next level. If repeated we will continue to develop and expand the dog’s skills.

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.

Level 1 Obedience

6 weeks, running:

  • Wednesdays starting September 7, 2022 at 6:30pm 
  • Wednesdays starting September 7, 2022 at 8:00pm
  • Sundays starting September 11, 2022 at 10:00am 

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.
