About Fetch 'N Dog Sports
We created Fetch 'N Dog Sports to share our passion for dog training and sports and help teams grow their bonds, improve their communication, learn new skills, surpass their goals, and, above all, have FUN! We structured our agility program to build up from strong foundations and help teams learn the fancy skills and challenging coursework without sacrificing safety or joy for the sport.
Our focus is dog sports and sports foundations, so even the puppy classes will include fun games and exercises prepping pups for future sports. We will also offer 'Intermediate Puppy' and 'Out and About Obedience' classes which will solidify life skills, obedience, socialization, and handler focus around various distractions and in different locations. We offer all levels of agility classes from foundations to international level coursework, disc dog skills & strategy, and coming in Spring 2022 - dock diving and swimming lessons!
We train using positive reinforcement and believe dogs learn best when you incorporate lots of playing and lots of rewards!
