Intro to AgilityExercise your dog’s body and mind with Dog Agility Training provided by the experts. Courteous Canine’s founder, Angelica Steinker, M. Ed., C.C.B.C., CAP 2, is a published author on the sport of agility, and her click and play training approach create a rewarding and fun agility experience.

In our entry-level class, we’ll give you and your dog a sampling of the exciting world of agility competition while your dog learns how to perform jumps, tunnels and chutes that are mentally and physically challenging. Dogs learn how to perform the obstacles off both sides of the handler’s body and how to use a high rate of rewarding to ensure that all learning is fun. As a side benefit, many of our clients report a reduction in their dog’s problem behaviors as a result of coming to agility training.

“Jack is a foster I got in February 2012. He has been a tough nut and has been the first dog in 12 years to make me think of giving up rescue. Angelica has given me hope and has enrolled Jack in Basic Agility. He LOVES it and has made a 180 degree turnaround. He loves his new JOB and I am certain we will find him the perfect home.”

StaceyAngelica’s agility coaching offers three things that were non-negotiable. 1. She is committed to fun: dogs and people learn using methods that get the best results possible but force free. 2. She is a CASI Institute Graduate, CASI and Dognostics Faculty Member and a trainer’s trainer. She understands behavior which means she can help me address training challenges with my unique breed choice. And, 3. Angelica has a deep interest and commitment to me and my dogs. Angelica’s coaching, for both training and handling, have helped me learn agility at its highest level. She has allowed me to run her own dogs, helping me to refine my handling skills. Angelica has taught me that it is not the outcome of any agility goal but rather the journey and having my best friends, my dogs, by my side that truly matters. If I experience a training or trialing frustrations, I see the joy in the process even when it isn’t progressing at some artificial pace that is not realistic for me or my dogs. I continue to learn the art of training as my dogs need it with a consistent emphasis on fun. Angelica offers training that is truly customized to each individual dog, as can only be offered by someone who has been in behavior modification, agility training, and competing for 20 years. — Stacey Saundry
