Agility

Fit-N-Trim classes are held at either our climate-controlled indoor facility at 108 Newburyport Turnpike, or at our outdoor ring or covered arena at 103 Haverhill Street. For all agility classes other than Beginner 1, please contact Karen to ensure that you and your dog are placed at the correct level. All agility classes except Beginner Agility 1 continue in six week blocks. Your instructor will let you know when a new six week session begins so you will know when payment is due. 

BEGINNER

Beginner introduces handlers and their dogs to all of the basic agility obstacles. This is your dog’s foundation work. Building a confident, well-rounded dog and handler is our focus and goal. To attend, dogs are required to have basic manners and be friendly toward other dogs.
