We have offered agility classes at Ahimsa for several years. Our core focus is to improve the relationship of dogs with their humans, and while agility does serve that goal, the training center is so busy these days that I had to decide between continuing to offer agilty classes and offering more manners classes, like Basic Manners, Intermediate Puppy, etc. Dogs who are taking agility are in very little danger of being rehomed or taken to a shelter, while dogs whose owners are looking at Basic Manners are more at risk. I chose to discontinue our agility program in order to make more time for these “at risk youth” in the dog world.
We will continue offering the Jump Into Agility workshop, taught by Pritamo Kentala, who taught our agility classes before. She is a great instructor and we wish her the best with her company, FunQuest Dog Sports.
