TBAC offers new Beginners classes each January and July. The focus of this class is to introduce the dogs to the agility equipment to lay the foundation for the TBAC training program.
There is a prerequisite of basic obedience. Your dog must have a good recall (come), sit, stay and lie down. If your dog needs to attend obedience classes, we can offer some recommendations. Your dog should also be crate trained. We can share some links to helpful YouTube® videos to assist with that as well. All Beginners class applicants will need to contact Susan Parrish to arrange for an evaluation to determine readiness for agility and to reserve a space in the January/July classes. Applicants will be accepted on a first come basis and will be notified of their status as soon as a non-refundable $50.00 deposit is received and evaluation is passed. See our evaluation demo video here: TBAC Evaluation Demo Video. Training fees are not refundable after your first class.
Before starting the first class, you must provide the following:

Requirement: Completion of Beginners I Class or contacting Beginners Training Chairperson
Duration: 10 weeks
With the completion of the second 10 week Beginners II class, you can pass into the Advanced Beginners class.

ADVANCED BEGINNERS, NOVICE, OPEN, EXCELLENT, AND MASTERS:
