Take a look at our frequently asked questions for more information about Urban Agility.

Do I attend class with my dog?

Yes! Classes are in person, so you should plan for someone to attend with your pup.

Can multiple handlers attend class?

Unfortunately, at this time, we are still only allowing one handler per pup. Handlers can switch off between each class session, however.

I'd like for my child to attend as the dog's handler. Is that okay?

As much as we love the idea of the whole family being involved with your pup’s training, all handlers in class MUST be over the age of 18.

What happens if I miss one or more classes?

If you are signed up for a class and fail to show up, or attempt to withdraw less than 12 hours before the start, you will lose the class credit.

What vaccines does my dog need for class?

We require proof of up to date Rabies and DHPP. That can be submitted at the time of enrollment, via email or brought to class in person.

I took class elsewhere. Can I sign up for Agility?

Because our classes have a set graduation criteria, all pups must attend at least one session of Level 1 and 2 at The Pet Republic in order to move into upper levels. If your pup is able to complete the six skills and receive their stamp, you are welcome to use the remainder of your package on the next level!

Is this a drop in class like Levels?

No, this is class runs for six consecutive weeks.

My dog has bitten another dog and/or person. Is this class right for them?

Unfortunately, pups who have a bite history are not a good fit for this class. Please contact the office for more detailed information on your options.

Help! I already purchased a package but can't seem to find the link to enroll in class.

No problem! The class enrollment link is sent out via email when you purchase your package. Alternatively, if you click the button above that says ‘View Class Availability’ and then use the red button on the following page, you should be able to enter your EMAIL ADDRESS to apply your credits and get scheduling!

My dog is highly reactive or fearful. Will they be alright to attend class?

The dogs in this class will be social but overaroused when in the presence of other dogs or people. As such, if you have a reactive or fearful dog, it is not likely to be a good fit. However, feel free to check in with the office or schedule a phone consult to discuss further!

My dog is in heat. Can she still attend class?

Unfortunately, a pup in active heat is not allowed to attend class, so you will need to reschedule accordingly!

What method do you use for training?

We are a LIMA-based facility, meaning we use the least intrusive, minimally aversive methods to train and modify behavior. We focus on using positive reinforcement to teach the dog what TO do. We do not use e-collars, prongs, or choke collars.

My dog is sick with ____. Can they still join classes?

Poor pup! Unfortunately, they cannot attend class until they are cleared. Before your pup can return to classes, you will need to supply a note from your vet stating that your dog is “healthy, non-contagious and appropriate for a group setting.” The note should be emailed to the office before you resume classes.
