Whether you are looking for outstanding training opportunities, socialization and playtime for your pup, or a chance to run NADAC Agility courses at K9 Corps Agility events, we have it all for you this month at Dogwood Acres, just 15 minutes northwest of the Fox River Mall in Appleton, WI.
Run for the camera! On the evenings of 7/2 and 7/9, K9 Corps Agility hosts VT Tuesdays … a chance for you to get your dog in the ring and run actual NADAC courses while being recorded. If your run appears to be clean and within standard course time, if there’s a fault you can still use your time in the ring as an excellent training opportunity. You can just take a toy in to the ring and reward the specific skill you are trying to train if you like – this is a very relaxed and enriching activity for Agiltiy enthusiasts of any “flavor”. We have a maximum of 20 dogs per evening (so the atmosphere is similar to a mini-trial environment) and we are typically very close to full on these evenings – so be sure to reserve your spot on the K9 Corps website: https://k9corps.club/trial-site-info/video-tape-runs/
Run at a live Agility Trial! The weekend of 7/19 – 7/21 will bring another three days of true agility fun as we host a NADAC sanctioned trial with Lorelei Purdy as our judge. Great food & hospitality, easy parking & crating, beautiful surroundings, and some truly talented Dog / Handler teams will be taking to the courses at all levels of experience to see what we can do!

We will also have a NADAC-Hosted event on August 2 – 4 here at Dogwood Acres. More live trial NADAC Agility fun and the roll out of the new & improved GAMBLERS class is coming the first weekend of August. Click here for the premium.

There will be 2 classes offered starting this month, each will run 8 weeks with one class on Sundays and one on Wednesdays, the cost is $175.
Radioactive to Reliable is a program designed to help dogs relax, work on and off leash with handlers, and remain focused amidst distractions in the environment!
Is my dog a good fit? Let’s see… Is your dog easily distracted? Does your dog bark at inappropriate times? Would you describe your dog as easily aroused? Does your dog become stressed out easily? Does your dog have a hard time controlling impulses when they are excited? If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of these… Talk to Amy or Jeff to find out if this class fits with your current training!
Sundays, 7/14/2019 at 4:30pm or Wednesdays, 7/17/2019 at 6:30pm
We look forward to seeing you soon!
